The Case of the Grave Accusation

How nice it would be if all our favorite literary characters could be summoned into the present day by a letter, telegram or email.  Such is the premise in The Case of the Grave Accusation, a Sherlock Holmes adventure by Dicky Neely.  Watson is summoned by Holmes by letter to arrive at 221b Baker St.  They seek out to investigate the allegations that the Hound of the Baskervilles was not written by Doyle but stolen from Robinson.  A nefarious gentleman by the name of Roger la Pelure d'Ail wants Robinson's body exhumed, after hurling the most atrocious accusations against Doyle.  Cool story, watch Holmes grapple with a computer and be happy about it! Nice chronology of the ACD/BFR story/intrigue at the end of the book.

Thanks to all for your continued praise of my Sherlock inspired story "The Murder in the Library."  I just received some nice words from Laura Levine, author of 8 Jaine Austen mysteries and a past writer for LaVerne and Shirley. Enjoy this hot summer and keep reading!
