INSIDE:

Sherlock Holmes at the Breakfast Table is a sparkling new collection of the further adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. It is unique in combining the style and intrigue of Holmes and Watson stories with the developing technology of turn-of-the-century Victorian England. Written in the original Strand Magazine style and told by Holmes' companion, Dr John Watson, these previously untold tales unfold with wit and humour and most are recounted or begin at the breakfast table. Although told in the classic Holmes style, these adventures see the pair involved in telegraphy, flying-machines, a horseless carriage, chemistry, naval weapons and advanced steam engines. Holmes applies his highly developed powers of deduction to whole new fields of understanding, and the stories deftly mingle fiction with facts and events of the day.
