While mourning and memorialising Sherlock, the best and the wisest man he has ever known, Watson suffers an additional bereavement – the death of his wife. Alone in the world, Watson’s only choice is to move forwards with his life and also move out of London, a place where he knows the past will haunt him.
While working in a convalescent hospital in Surrey, Watson meets a patient who claims to know the truth and can answer his painstaking questions. The patient, delirious with pain, says he witnessed Sherlock in Tibet, Persia and other exotic locations.
Thus begins Watson’s hunt for the truth which leads him from the darkest alleys of London all the way to the upper echelons of the British Empire.
The Travels of Sherlock Holmes is the First of John Hall’s Sherlockian pastiches and a brilliant addition to the Holmes and Watson casebooks.
John Hall spent many years in the civil service before becoming a professional writer specialising in crime fiction. His book Death of a Collector won the Sherlock Magazine’s competition for the best new fictional detective. He is also the author of several other Sherlock mysteries.
