Halloween Sherlock is my series of slightly dark Sherlock Holmes short reads or novelettes – and it was never intended to be a series. I genuinely thought The Case of the Snow-White Lady was a one-off – and then I had an idea about some fog… Book 3 will be coming later this year, probably round about Halloween!
The Case of the Snow-White Lady
There is no such thing as a vampire … or is there?
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are summoned to Dartmoor by an old schoolfriend of Watson’s, Bill Holcombe. His sixteen year old daughter Amelia, who died a month previously, has been seen wandering the village at night. Witnesses swear that she catches animals and sucks their blood. The whole neighbourhood fears the ‘Snow-White Lady’, and Holcombe is desperate to prove she is not a vampire.
The great detective’s famous scepticism is put to the test in a mystery where boundaries blur between the living and the dead…
Sherlock Holmes and the Deathly Fog
Who can fight a deathly fog?
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are summoned into the heart of London’s slums by perhaps his strangest client yet. Children are vanishing without a trace, and the only connection is the thick fog which conceals their disappearance.
Are the children alive or dead? Can the great detective discover the truth? And will the mysterious woman in black help or hinder him?
