Description

From the author of the international bestseller, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, comes a newly uncovered adventure of Sherlock Holmes. With the international bestseller The Seven-Per-Cent Solution Nicholas Meyer brought to light a previously unpublished case of Sherlock Holmes, as recorded by Dr. John H. Watson. Now Meyer returns with a shocking discovery—an unknown case drawn from a recently unearthed Watson journal. January 1905: Holmes and Watson are summoned by Holmes' brother Mycroft to undertake a clandestine investigation. An agent of the British Secret Service has been found floating in the Thames, carrying a manuscript smuggled into England at the cost of her life. The pages purport to be the minutes of a meeting of a secret group intent on nothing less than taking over the world: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. A seeming forgery, Holmes and Watson are sent to determine its origins, and what the perpetrators of this hoax (if it IS a hoax), are trying to accomplish. And why they are trying so hard to keep their handiwork out of the hands of the British Secret Service. In an adventure that takes the famed duo—in the company of a bewitching woman—aboard the Orient Express from Paris into the heart of Tsarist Russia, Holmes and Watson attempt to trace the genesis of this explosive document. On their heels are desperate men of unknown allegiance, determined to prevent them achieving their task. And what they uncover is a puzzle that only the superior intellect of Sherlock Holmes has any hope of untangling.
