Ashcroft, BC, Canada; Calabash Press, 2002. When Sherlock Holmes is consulted by an Infantry Captain, who, on his return from the war in Afghanistan, is ignored and shunned by friends and acquaintances in his home village—where he has been liked and respected all his life—a tale of betrayal and murder begins to unfold. Such is the scenario for ‘The Adventure of The Willow Pool’, the centrepiece story of this, Denis O. Smith’s fourth collection of The Chronicles of Sherlock Holmes. You are invited to follow Holmes in this new adventure, and those of ‘The Adventure of The Von Strauffhausen Papers’, ‘The North Walk Mystery’, and ‘The Adventure of The Yellow Glove’. Denis O. Smith continues to stake his claim as the finest practitioner of Sherlock Holmes pastiche. First hardcover edition published in Canada by Calabash Press. Fine in fine dj.
