Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson take on the case of Mr Avery Quill, whose daughter has mysteriously disappeared. The investigation has hardly begun when her body is discovered, and Mr Quill is himself murdered in the same manner. 

The killer leaves visiting cards emblazoned with the head of the gorgon at the scenes of his crimes, and Holmes connects these to a strange club known as "The One Hundred per Cent Society". He learns little there, except that the members are all outcasts from noble families.

The following morning, a visitor arrives at Baker Street to tell Holmes and Watson that the society has a sinister purpose and that its leader has identified them as an obstacle to his plans which must be removed. 

Thus begins a battle with a new and merciless adversary, whose madness and thirst for revenge threaten to bring about the deaths of an apparently unconnected group of people. The great detective pits his skills against an enemy, whose very appearance is uncertain.

A solid second book in the Arthur Hall collection

Arthur Hall's first Sherlock Holmes pastiche "The Demon of the Dusk," was masterful. This follow-up piece, although solid, falls a bit short of the mark. It appears to be two parts stitched together, a device that passably works but lacks the sharpness of its predeccesor. However, it is far superior to many other Sherlock Holmes pastiches on the market now. Narrator Nick Crosby puts in another superior performance, which only strengthens the book.
