The Adventure of the Black Bishop(2008)
An anthology of stories edited by Mark Coggins
Newly recovered papers from the estate of John H. Watson, M.D. chronicle a thrilling and hitherto unknown episode in the career of the world's most famous detective, Mr. Sherlock Holmes. When Charles Keshton, a well-to-do barrister, seeks Holmes assistance for a troubling incident involving his wife Barbara, Holmes and Watson are thrust into a case involving a secretive London social club with strange membership rituals and even stranger club activities. But there is more on display than Holmes' mastery of deduction and investigative technique. In a stunning revelation Watson makes at the outset of the narrative, "The Adventure of the Black Bishop" marks the one time that "Holmes broke his habit of cold aloofness toward the fairer sex, and engaged in relations with women that more closely corresponded to the common pattern of behavior between men and women the world over."
