Airship 27 Productions is thrilled to announce the release of SHERLOCK HOLMES – CONSULTING DETECTIVE, Vol 6. Here is another quintet of traditional Sherlock Holmes mysteries written in the style of his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Sherlock Holmes, arguably the greatest fictional character ever created, returns along with his faithful friend, Dr. Watson, in five brand new stories pitting his deductive skills against all manner of gaslight villainy.
A man awakens in a sanitarium claiming to be Dr. John Watson. A young student is charged with the murder of his famous professor. A Paris gang of jewel thieves brings the Great Detective to the City of Lights. Murder in a London opium den unlocks the evil lurking within the estate of a prestigious British family and the ghost of Dr. Moriarty may have risen from the grave to challenge his Baker Street rival one final time.
These are the baffling cases documented here by writers Ian Watson, Michael A. Black, Alan J. Porter and Greg Hatcher; all guaranteed to keep Holmes fans intrigued and entertained from the first tale to the last.
“This continues to be our best selling series,” declares Airship 27 Managing Editor, Ron Fortier. “The previous five volumes have all been hugely successful and still continue to be among the top mystery anthology sales at Amazon.” In explaining the reason behind the overwhelming popularity of the series, Fortier credits the traditional format. “All of the stories featured in our books are done in the Conan Doyle style. There are no Martian invaders, no vampire scourges; just good old fashion Victorian mysteries as narrated by the unflappable Dr.Watson with the Great Detective employing his deductive skills to their utmost.”
This sixth entry again features interior illustrations by Pulp Factory Award winning artist, Rob Davis, with a stunning cover by artist Pat Carabjal that depicts both Holmes and Watson and the notorious Irene Adler as modeled by actress Irene Huber.
And so the fog rolls in off the Thames, the clip-clop of Hansom cabs passes by and suddenly a shrill scream cuts through the night. Once again the game is afoot!
