Sherlock Holmes and the Explorers' Club (The Early Casebook of Sherlock Holmes 2) Kindle Edition
Holmes is faced with an unidentified body, a coded message, and multiple murders…
When the preserved foot of a dead man with extra toes arrives at St Bartholomew’s Medical College, the students are fascinated. However, despite this unusual feature being reported in the press, the man’s identity remains a mystery.
Intrigued by the puzzle, medical student Mr Stamford calls on his acquaintance Sherlock Holmes — an eccentric but brilliant young sleuth — to help him learn more about the deceased.
With only the man’s boots and a few possessions to examine, Holmes relishes the challenge. He soon finds a coded message hidden inside the man’s purse, which suggests a possible connection to criminals or spies.
Over the course of their investigations, Holmes’ and Stamford’s suspicions are strengthened when they learn of further shocking deaths. It soon becomes apparent that the men who died all belonged to the mysterious Explorers Club — and the lives of the remaining members may also be in danger.
Although the deaths look like accidents, Holmes is convinced that the men were murdered. And with conspiracy and intrigue lurking at every turn, he must now expose the secrets of the Explorers Club before the next member meets a grisly end…
SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE EXPLORERS’ CLUB is the second Victorian crime thriller in the Early Casebook of Sherlock Holmes series.
‘Linda Stratmann is renowned for her knowledge of the Victorian period and this skill is apparent in the authenticity of the historical detail in this book. The plot is convincing as a Holmes’ mystery and the characterisation is excellent. The introduction of Stamford as an engaging new narrator is a brilliant innovation, which works better than contemporary attempts to replicate the narrative style of Doctor Watson. This mystery is the most authentic recreation of a Sherlock Holmes story that I have read. A fascinating read, which I recommend’ – Carol Westron for Mystery People
'Hats off, then, to Linda Stratmann for her rather wonderful Sherlock Holmes and the Rosetta Stone Mystery. The Sherlock Holmes she presents us with is a convincing representation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s and the style is remarkably similar.' - Tom Williams for Historia
