These three Sherlock Holmes cases are all based on forgotten documents, diaries, Scotland Yard reports and letters, many of them discovered among the effects of the late Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock's older brother. The manuscripts reveal that Sherlock, the great Victorian detective and criminologist, was not only in advance of his time, but was asked on several occasions by the official detective force to track down serial killers, child abusers, Irish Fenians, Jack the Ripper, and the ultimate king of the underworld, Professor James Moriarty. Many shocking secrets regarding Dr Watson, Watson's first wife Mary, and Holmes' drug addiction are also revealed. Kelvin I Jones is the author of many books about Holmes and his creator. He has recently edited and reissued Holmes' definitive work on late 19th Century criminology, 'The Art of Detection.' 'Not for the faint hearted…' Roger Johnson, editor of The Sherlock Holmes Journal
