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 – and then I saw an ebony cabinet in a stately home and decided it should have its own story…
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?
The Case of the Curious Cabinet
A riddle with death at its heart…
When Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are summoned to Norfolk to unlock the secret of an ebony puzzle cabinet bequeathed to their client, they discover that the cabinet is merely the beginning of the mystery.
A man has died…but was it murder? Can the great detective solve the case – and open the cabinet – before time runs out?

In the same vein: The Adventure of the Scarlet Rosebud
A medium dies – but is it murder?
When Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson investigate the death of Marcia Le Fanu, a well-known medium, they enter an unfamiliar world of trickery and intrigue. Was Marcia Le Fanu cursed by a rival? Or does the truth lie closer to home?
To solve this case Sherlock Holmes will need all his deductive powers — and Dr Watson will be tested too…
