A mysterious burglary. Political intrigue. And another case for Mycroft Holmes.

There has been a mysterious burglary at his father's mansion. Two famous Raphael Popes have disappeared. Mycroft travels north by a special train. Did the thieves break in or was it an inside job? What secrets are lurking in the Stewards Room? How great are the Duke's debts and his obligations to the moneylenders? What is amiss in his relations with his wife?

Fans of historical fiction and of Dickinson's earlier Mycroft novellas will love this story, as will devotees of the original Sherlock Holmes stories whose tone is superbly captured by the author.

Mycroft Holmes and The Case of the Missing Popes is the third in David Dickinson's brilliant series of novellas that started with Mycroft Holmes and the Adventure of the Silver Birches and continued with Mycroft Holmes and The Adventure of the Naval Engineer. .
