Description

THE ADVENTURE OF THE NOTABLE BACHELORETTE: A snobbish and obnoxious nobleman enters 221B Baker Street demanding the help of Sherlock Holmes in finding his much younger wife - a beautiful and spirited American from the West. Three days later the wife is accused of a vile crime. Now she comes to Sherlock Holmes seeking his help to prove her innocence so she can avoid the gallows. Neither noble husband nor wife have been playing by the rules of Victorian moral behavior. So who did it? The wife? The mistress? The younger brother? Someone unknown? Fans of Sherlock Holmes will enjoy this mystery, set in London during the last years of the nineteenth century, and written in the same voice as the beloved stories of the original canon. This new mystery was inspired by the original Sherlock Holmes story, The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor. The original Sherlock Holmes story that inspired this one is appended to the paperback edition of this book.show more

About Craig Stephen Copland

In May of 2014 the Sherlock Holmes Society of Canada - better known as The Bootmakers (www.torontobootmakers.com) - announced a contest for a new Sherlock Holmes story. Although he had no experience writing fiction, the author submitted a short Sherlock Holmes mystery and was blessed to be declared one of the winners. Thus inspired, he has continued to write new Sherlock Holmes Mysteries since and is on a mission to write a new Sherlock Holmes mystery inspired by each of the sixty stories in the original canon. In real life he writes about and serves as a consultant for political campaigns in Canada and the USA, but would abandon that pursuit if he could possibly earn a decent living writing about Sherlock Holmes. He currently writes from Toronto, Tokyo, and Manhattan. Fellow Sherlockians should feel free to contact him at Sherlock75Holmes@aol.com.show more
