Arthur Conan Doyle provided few details on Holmes’ boyhood. His ancestors were country squires, his grandmother was the sister of the French artist Vernet, and he had a brother named Mycroft – seven years his senior.
Recently, a cache of documents has been discovered detailing, in Sherlock’s own hand, his early forays into criminal investigation.
Only weeks into his first year at Eton, Sherlock’s father calls his brother and him back to Underbyrne, the ancestral estate. The village midwife has been found with a pitchfork in her back in the estate’s garden, and Mrs. Holmes has been accused of the murder.
Can Sherlock find the true killer in time to save her from the gallows?
The arrival of unexpected guests. A dead body in the barn. Noises in the dead of night. Christmas at the Holmes’ estate is full of surprises.
Shortly after old acquaintances of Sherlock’s uncle join the extended Holmes family for the holidays, a dead man is found in the barn and marks the beginning of the disruptions of their Christmas celebrations.
Sherlock’s young cousin reports hearing footsteps outside the nursery, the family learns that their guests are not who they appear, and Mycroft suddenly falls head-over-heels in love.
Can Sherlock solve the mystery of the murdered man before more in the household meet a similar fate?
A tragedy during the 1868 Oxford-Cambridge Boat race puts Mycroft Holmes’ reputation on the line. When Mycroft Holmes identifies a drowning victim, he is drawn into a situation that could destroy not only Lord Surminster’s name but his own reputation as well.
If ruled a suicide, the lord’s assets will be returned to the Crown, leaving his mother and siblings destitute. Should that happen, the victim’s sister has threatened to drag Mycroft’s good name through the mire.
Will Sherlock be able to determine what happened before more than one family is destroyed?
