As Sherlock Holmes once conceded to Dr. Watson, 'If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the planning, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chain of events, working through generations and leading to the most outréresults, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.' And with such a spirit for investigation and discovery does David Grann set out in The Devil and Sherlock Holmes to unravel the truth of twelve great, real-life mysteries. Although Holmes is the subject of just one of the mesmerizing true stories in this collection, all twelve contain elements of intrigue. Many of the protagonists are sleuths: a Polish detective trying to determine whether an author planted clues to a real murder in his post-modern novel; an arson investigator racing to prove whether a man about to be executed is innocent; a legendary French con man questioning whether he is the one who is suddenly being conned; and scientists stalking a sea monster. Unlike the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, these tales are all true. The protagonists are mortal and pieces of the puzzle often elude them. Some of the characters are driven to deception and murder. Others go mad. But ultimately the stories contained in The Devil and Sherlock Holmesshed light on the human condition, and why some people on this earth devote themselves to good and others to evil. As Holmes put it, 'Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent'.

Moriarty! He was, according to Sherlock Holmes, 'the Napoleon of Crime', -- a mathematical genius gone mad who was the thinker and organizer behind nearly every great crime that came Holmes' way. Why then was the Professor, whose evil pervaded the city like a bleak November fog, so seldom mentioned in Dr. Watson's previous accounts of the Great Detective's exploits at the time? Now Watson finally tells all in this newly discovered manuscript. We return to the autumn and winter of 1888; a time Watson writes, when the high-stakes duel between Holmes and Moriarty for 'the very heart and moral soul of London' was at its height. Watson admits that Holmes was, at times, completely overcome by the machinations of the evil Professor, who was by far the most menacing foe he ever faced. And, for the first time, he even admits to a shameful role he unknowingly played in one of Moriarty's most nefarious schemes...as the would-be assassin of Sherlock Holmes!

Some fiend is brutally murdering random people in Lower Havering and pinning cards from the Italian deck on their faces.

At the request of the police, Holmes and his faithful chronicler begin an investigation. But unraveling the treacherous scheme of the sinister Tarot Master proves to be no simple task. As the two dauntless men pursue the case, they begin to piece together a vast plot stretching from London’s lofty perches of wealth and privilege all the way down to its seedy backstreets and byways. In the course of resolving this intricate mystery, the Great Detective and his devoted assistant will deal with ritual murder and remorse-driven suicide, confront shady characters both clever and dangerous, uncover dark secrets of affluent society, and face at every turn the violent wrath of a ruthless, diabolical genius.

The uncharacteristically nervous great detective tackles the case of the tobacco millionaire and the Glastonbury Fragments, one of the most bizarre investigations of Holmes' and Watson's long partnership. In the spring of 1895, Colonel John Vincent Harman, an American inventor of an ingenious camera, was the object of anonymous threats to leave Britain, escalating to the abduction of his son, Jay. Behind this criminal activity, Holmes detected the hand of Drew, his old enemy, Professor Moriarty's lieutenant, an ex-Scotland Yard detective and worshipper of Demeter, the goddess of fertility. Drew suspected that Harman's stereoscope could uncover the mystery of a perverse religious cult, a priceless treasure which, if possessed, Moriarty believes, would give him power over the whole world.

Sherlock Holmes Plays the Game is an interesting new collection of the further adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. It is unique in combining the style and intrigue of Holmes and Watson stories with the developing technology of turn-of-the-century Victorian England. Written in the original Strand Magazine style and told by Holmes’ companion, Dr John Watson, these previously untold tales unfold with wit and humour. Although conveyed in the classic Holmes style, these adventures see the pair involved in tracking down a lost Shakespeare manuscript, illusions, railways, airships, kidnap of animals, and people, testing of alibis, coded messages, advanced communications and electric weapons. Holmes applies his highly developed powers of deduction to whole new fields of understanding, and the stories deftly mingle fiction with facts and events of the day.
