Sherlock Holmes and the Dead Boer at Scotney Castle By Tim Symonds

IN the midst of the most terrible war in the history of mankind, WWI, with England stalemated and thwarted wherever it turns, someone of immense power and prestige turns to Sherlock Holmes to do something he believes no one else in the world can do.

In their most secret and dangerous adventure yet, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are sent into war-torn Bolshevik Russia to rescue the deposed Romanov Family before they can be executed: the Tsar, Nicholas II; the Tsarina, Alexandra; the haemophiliac Tsarevich, Alexei; and the beautiful Grand Duchesses Olga, Marie, Tatiana and Anastasia.

Increasingly unsure of who is friend and who is foe, Holmes and Watson must outwit the Bolshevik secret police, the counter-revolutionary forces and even their own government.

As events precipitously unfold, Holmes and Watson become entangled with former opponents; the King, George V; and even Lenin, as they attempt to complete their mission and save their own lives.

But just who is it that wants them to succeed, and who wants them to fail? Who are the “invisible others” who seem to be the real power behind the throne?

And if these men have such power, can Holmes and Watson possibly survive?
