The House of Silk

Sherlock Holmes is dead. Dr. Watson is near the end of his life, but he has one last tale to tell. The adventure of The House of Silk must be told. Sherlock Holmes is in prison, charged with murder. Watson is left to solve the case, relying on his wits.  The story is so sensational that according to Watson's instructions his manuscript is to be sealed in a vault. The vault is to remain sealed for one hundred years following his death. The story, if told, will cause such scandal that the entire fabric of British society will be torn apart. However, it is a tale worth telling.

Anthony Horowitz now shares this tale with us in The House of Silk: A Sherlock Holmes Novel.  The Arthur Conan Doyle Estate
 authorized Horowitz to write this book.  Indeed, it has the feel of a true Conan Doyle tale.  We are once again drawn into the gaslit streets of London.  We experience the poverty and hopelessness of the underclass. The "game" becomes personal for Holmes when one of his Baker Street Irregulars is found brutally murdered.  Holmes and Watson uncover a conspiracy of unspeakable horror.  Want to know more? Check this book out!
