Ashcroft, BC, Canada; Calabash Press; 1998. THE CHRONICLES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES volume 2 by Dennis O. Smith. Denis O. Smith's highly acclaimed Chronicles of Sherlock Holmes continue, as Holmes and Watson find themselves involved in a further three cases—intriguing puzzles, which bring into play all the skills of the great detective. In 'The Secret of Shoreswood Hall', Holmes resolves the problem of a missing husband, and unlocks a centuries-old family secret—but not with the results that he would have wished. When Mr Horace Barclay calls at Baker Street to involve Holmes in 'The Adventure of the Green Umbrella', Holmes and Watson become involved in a rather amusing diversion—one which, however, is not without its darker moments. Finally, in a Christmas adventure set away from the familiar surroundings of Baker Street, Holmes solves the mystery of 'The Christmas Visitor'. These three adventures further enhance Denis O. Smith's reputation as one of the finest modern practitioners of the Sherlock Holmes story. Published in trade paperback in Canada by Calabash Press. Fine. Second printing.
