At last I can get back to the Sherlock Holmes and one of the many good novel pastiches that abound at MX Publishing.
Sherlock Holmes and the Dead Boer at Scotney Castle, is full of surprises, even for the great detective himself.
The adventure begins in early summer of 1904. The President of the Kipling League, David Siviter, sends Sherlock Holmes a telegram, inviting him to Crick’s End in Sussex that afternoon to give a talk to the League as an expert on “the criminal mind.” The League includes Siviter (poet and children’s writer), Alfred Weit, Sir Julius Wernher, and Viscount Van Beers, all rich and powerful men, devotees of Kipling and adamant believers in empire. Pevensey, a famous, if mediocre, painter will also be on the premises.
