This volume of Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective is a dramatization based on the works of Arthur Conan Doyle, adapted by David Stuart Davies.
It is 1916, and Sherlock Holmes has returned to his rooms in Baker Street after attending the funeral of his longtime associate, Dr John H. Watson. Holmes reflects on the old days and comes to realise that not only was there so much that he had shared with Watson in his lifetime but also there was so much that he had not revealed to him: things he had kept hidden, including his deep affection for his friend.
In The Tangled Skein, author David Stuart Davies accomplishes a creative coup by arranging the fateful meeting of two of literature's most resilient characters: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Bram Stoker's Count Dracula.
A fascinating drama in which Sherlock Holmes steps off the page to save his life and in doing so faces a heart-stopping revelation about his own existence. Haunted by the tag of ‘the Sherlock Holmes man’ and tired of his catchpenny detective creation author Arthur Conan Doyle employs the services of Professor Moriarty to bring an end to the career of the Great Detective.
A brutal game devised by three intelligent but bored teenagers escalates into murder. Led by the charismatic and cunning Laurence, the trio of 'brothers' meets once a year to carry out untraceable, motiveless murders - for fun. Until, years later, they must murder in order to protect one of their own, leaving themselves vulnerable to discovery. The killing is investigated by Detective Inspector Paul Snow, a complex man with a secret of his own which links him to the murder.
