'A must for amateur detectives and super sleuths ... this collection will offer hours of entertainment.' Daily Express
If you’ve always fancied yourself a bit of a Sherlock Holmes, there’s no better way to test yourself than against these ingenious detective tales.
In this intriguing book, I present 25 new Sherlock Holmes cases and challenge you to pit your powers of deduction against those of the Great Detective. Full of the atmosphere and ambience of 221b Baker Street, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back into the pages of Arthur Conan Doyle … except this time you have an opportunity to prove you’re a match for the super sleuth.
Each case provides all the evidence you need to crack it - provided you’re sharp enough to spot the clues - with challenges from codebreaking to lateral thinking, memory to logic … and when you think you've got the answer (or are totally foxed), read the conclusion of each story at the back of the book and find out how Sherlock fared. He managed to solve 24 out of the 25 cases in this book – can you to go one better?
