Hey: if you love mystery stories, especially the original stories about Sherlock Holmes, then you will really enjoy this brand new set of Sherlock Holmes adventures.

Like the original stories, they’re set in the late Victorian England (and a few other more exotic locations) and the much loved characters of Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and Mrs. Hudson are all there acting just the way they did when you first met them. The evil Professor Moriarty also shows up. The only difference is in the female characters – they’re much more assertive than when written by Arthur Conan Doyle.

But like the original stories they are appropriate for all ages and all members of your family. No foul language, everybody keeps their clothes on, and the power of scientific deduction allows good to triumph over evil.

The paperback novels are all available immediately from Amazon. E-book and large print editions also available.

Click now on any of the covers to look inside and order. And enjoy the adventures of the world’s favorite detective.
