Sherlock Holmes is one of the most beloved detectives ever created and many have been inspired to continue his adventures after Sir Conan Doyle's death. In that spirit, The Mammoth Book of The Lost Chronicles of Sherlock Holmes brings together some of the more than two dozen stories that Denis O. Smith regarded as the best Holmes storyteller after Doyle wrote since the publication of The Adventure of the Purple Hand” in 1982.

Denis O. Smith is interested in everything from the history of London to Victorian society to railways, all of which contribute to giving his stories a true flavor of the period. He lives in Norfolk, England.Review:
"Smith is adept at generating suspense, even in stories not dependent on violence. His traditional approach will appeal to readers who want period mysteries featuring characters Conan Doyle would have no trouble recognizing."
-Publishers Weekly starred review
"Smith masterfully uses some of Doyle's favorite starting plots: the theft of a famous jewel with a bloody history, a family inheritance fight, and the hunt for secret papers. He adds the atmosphere of London and environs just before the turn of the last century, and Doyle's characters behave as expected. The ten short stories and two somewhat longer ones kept my interest, and for a while I could almost imagine I'd come across a new trove of genuine Doyle material."
