J.R. Rain, #1 international bestselling author of the Vampire for Hire series, again teams up with Chanel Smith for another Sherlock Holmes mystery thriller! When Holmes joins his sidekick and friend, Doctor Watson, at the wake for Brigadier Buffington, they wonder how Buffington acquired a lost Leonardo da Vinci painting. And, after a curious incident or two, another question arises: Did Buffington die of natural causes? A wager between the good doctor and the legendary sleuth turns into an outright competition, with each investigator withholding clues from the other! The game is afoot as they compete to win the wager... and uncover possible murder, deceit and scandal. It's up to Holmes and Watson to sift through the mounting evidence in order to derive the motive, means and opportunity for each crime. The great Victorian London detective must use deductive reasoning - and even outright trickery - in order to learn whodunnit and why. But when material evidence disappears, will it be Watson or Holmes who finally deduces the truth from a tangled web of lies? And will the lost da Vinci painting be recovered before it disappears forever?

In this brilliant pastiche, Sherlock Holmes investigates a mystery involving one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays An agitated, portly gentleman waddles down Baker Street toward 221B, his pockets sagging and his eyes wide with panic. From his window Sherlock Holmes diagnoses the man as a collector of rare books, on his way to ask for help finding a missing volume. The brilliant detective is correct, of course, but even he is taken aback when the nature of the work in question—a first folio of Hamlet, inscribed in Shakespeare’s own hand—is revealed. As Holmes and his steadfast companion, Dr. Watson, investigate, they discover that rare-book collectors can be just as cunning and diabolical as any villain ever dreamed up by the Bard of Avon. A founder of the Baker Street Irregulars and the author of an indispensible biography, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, Vincent Starrett combined a scholar’s authority with a fan’s enthusiasm in his appreciation of the great detective. No one was better suited to write a new adventure for Holmes and Watson, and The Unique Hamlet is both a loving homage and a thrilling mystery. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

From his 1887 literary debut to his many film and television adaptations, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has lost none of his appeal. Besides Holmes himself, no character in Conan Doyle's stories proves as interesting as the astute detective's constant companion, Dr. Watson, who somehow seems both superfluous and essential. While Conan Doyle does not depict Holmes and Watson as equals, he avoids presenting Watson as incompetent, as he was made to appear on screen for decades. A variety of reimagined Holmeses and Watsons in recent years have depicted their relationship as more nuanced and complementary. Focusing on the Guy Ritchie films, the BBC's Sherlock and CBS's Elementary, this collection of new essays explores the ideas and implications behind these adaptations.
