Return to both the grandeur and the gothic underbelly of the Victorian age in the company of Mr. Sherlock Holmes and Dr John H Watson. Holmes was often reluctant to allow Watson to chronicle publically some of his most sensitive cases. In such circumstances, Dr Watson's first literary editor was occasionally permitted to publish the events as fictions with all mention of Holmes involvement removed. Comprising the collections 'Seen & Observed' and 'Their Dark Crisis,' within are eight recently unearthed cases that reveal the secret sorrows behind some of those tales. Dr Watson relates all eight adventures in the finest tradition and spirit of such classics as 'The Problem of Thor Bridge' and 'The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire.'

SEEN & OBSERVED: Sherlock Holmes was a keen observer of the human spirit. These adventures include a real tragedy that unfolds during a production of the cursed Scottish play, how a single out-of-place item freed an innocent man, how a chilling murderess was finally brought to justice, and how the calamities of the past can ripple out to the present. This collection includes the tales 'The Adventure of the Tragic Act,' 'The Problem of the Black Eye,' 'The Mannering Towers Mystery,' and 'The Adventure of the Twelfth Hour.'

THEIR DARK CRISIS: Sherlock Holmes was always loathe to admit the possibility of the supernatural. These adventures include his struggle against a man with an unhealthy power over the weak-minded, his capture of a man capable of summoning ghosts, his debunking of visions from the past, and his unearthing of an earthly explanation for a man's terrible curse. This collection includes the tales 'The Adventure of the Most Dangerous Man,' 'The Adventure of the Haunted Grange,' 'The Adventure of the Fabricated Vision,' and 'The Adventure of the Wrong Hand.'

Fully annotated, this edition contains a cornucopia of scholarly insights that compare these newly unearthed tales by Dr John H. Watson to the classic adventures from the Canon of Sherlock Holmes.
