    In these five tales, Sherlock Holmes is shown at the height of his powers: he co-operates with a young Winston Churchill in the famed Siege of Sydney Street, helps defeat a plan for a German invasion outlined in the Zimmerman Telegram, establishes a link between two missing lighthouse keepers and the royal treasures of King John, contends with a supernatural curse places upon an eccentric aristocrat, and discovers a lost epic of Lord Byron.

    Michael says: "Don't waste your money."

    Story

    It you want a story with a Holmes that doesn't follow Holmes' methods, this is for you. Guesswork, laying out all the details of his solution before the end, total disregard for Canon, I could go on. (Moriarty on a horse, in a Hindu costume, in a parade!) I've read many Sherlockian fictions before, but this is the first that if you change the name of the main character, I would have been unable to deduce that it was Holmes.
