Description

Pray tell, do you love to read Sherlock Holmes stories? But in real books? Eyesight not quite as good as it once was? But you want to read MORE SHERLOCK? You came to the singularly correct place. Sixty new "canonical" Sherlock Holmes stories; each one a tribute to one of the original stories in the Canon, all in LARGE PRINT. Enjoy. THE BALD-HEADED TRUST. No sooner has Sherlock Holmes arrived in Plymouth for a short vacation than he finds himself in the middle of an unsolved crime - the Telegraph Murders. Two electrical engineers were found dead after completing a contract for the new Western Union telegraph office. Holmes's very unusual helper in this case is an exceptionally pious but still attractive woman whois the proprietor of a Christian bookstore. Some evil genius is behind a scheme to rob shareholders of millions of pounds and is prepared to commit murder to make sure his diabolical plan works. Holmes, Watson and his new recruits must first deduce what is going on and then solve the crime. Readers who are sympathetic to devout Christian believers will enjoy seeing some saintly folks help the world's greatest detective. Lovers of Sherlock Holmes mysteries will enjoy this new story, written today but as faithful as possible to the characters, heroes, villains, language, and setting of the original Sherlock Holmes. Buy now and enjoy.

About Craig Stephen Copland

Once upon a time Craig Stephen Copland was an English major and studied under both Northrop Frye and Marshall McLuhan at the University of Toronto way back in the 1960's. He never got over his spiritual attraction to great literature and captivating stories. Somewhere in the decades since he became a Sherlockian. He is a recent member of the Bootmakers of Toronto (www.torontobootmakers.com), and mildly addicted to the sacred canon. In real life he writes about and serves as a consultant for political campaigns in Canada and the USA (www.ConservativeGrowth.net), but would abandon that pursuit if he could possibly earn a decent living writing about Sherlock Holmes
