The Adventure of the Lying Man
A senior government official falls dead, almost into Sherlock Holmes’s lap.
He was in charge of awarding contracts for major government projects, worth millions of pounds. They were to be announced in three weeks.
Somebody wanted to disrupt the awards. A contract worth over a million pounds is a reason to commit murder.
The official grew up in Fulworth, the same town where a man died after being stung by the creepy, deadly giant jellyfish Holmes wrote about in The Adventure of the Lion’s Mane. The characters from that story, especially the peerless Sussex beauty, Maud, agree to help Holmes investigate the crime … and do so at their peril.
Holmes’s brother, Mycroft—he that occasionally IS the British government—must also try to help, also at his peril.
With each passing week, the implications of the case grow. Holmes must act before national security, indeed the security of the British Empire, are at risk.
This story, the 51st in the series of New Sherlock Holmes Mysteries, is a tribute to the story about the Lion’s Mane. Will the creepy, deadly giant jellyfish return? You will have to read the story.
To be published on March 17 along with a bonus book. Pre-order now and enjoy the story as soon as it is released.
