If you think Sherlock Holmes, the world’s greatest detective, and his sidekick, Watson, never tested their deducting skills in America, think again. In this collection of fourteen stories from a variety of celebrated mystery writers, the game is indeed afoot—from the bustling neighborhoods of Chicago and Washington, D.C. to the lawless Wild West and the wilder west of San Francisco. In this ingenious collection, Holmes, far from Baker Street, is drawn into a political puzzle in New York City and lured to Utah by Mormons; investigates the death of an old friend in Boston; and crosses paths with such legendary figures as Harry Houdini, Annie Oakley, Buffalo Bill Cody, Theodore Roosevelt, and Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday.
Written in the tradition of the original mysteries but with unique American twists, from top talents including Victoria Thompson, author of the Gaslight Mysteries, and Lyndsay Faye, author of The Gods of Gotham, this is a must-read for any mystery fan and for those who have followed Holmes's illustrious career over the waterfall and back again.
