Sherlock Holmes has retired to the country to look after bees. And Dr Watson has returned full time to his medical profession.

So when a new case comes along, Inspector Lestrade turns instead to Sherlock's reclusive but highly intelligent older brother Mycroft.

'The Mycroft Holmes Casebook' collects together all six of David Dickinson's best-selling Mycroft Holmes detective adventures in one place. From the City of London, to the finest country estates, Mycroft proves every bit as ingenious as his brother.

It includes:

'The Case of the Silver Birches':

Inspector Lestrade is facing the biggest case of his career. The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and the Governor of the Bank of England have learnt through a variety of sources that Britain's enemies were trying to debase the currency. Mycroft tracks the gang through the banks and Treasuries of Europe, his brain travelling faster than the swiftest express train...

'The Case of the Naval Engineer':

When a corpse is found by the fire in Mycroft Holmes's rooms in London's Pall Mall early one morning, the brother of the country's most famous detective is about to face the greatest mystery of his career. Within two hours, Mycroft Holmes has been arrested on a charge of murder and taken in handcuffs to Wormwood Scrubs prison. Has he been framed by his greatest enemy, the elusive master criminal the German Count Von Stoltenburg?

'The Case of the Missing Popes':

Mycroft Holmes is approached by a distraught young aristocrat, the son of the Home Secretary Lord Melrose. 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?

'The Case of the Bankers' Conclave':

A financial crisis, and a bank on the brink of ruin. The City of London, the great financial hub of the British Empire, stands on the edge of collapse. And yet, in the background, an attack on the City's lines of communication are making the matter worse. Mycroft Holmes believes dark forces are at work. And he has just a few hours to prove his theory correct ...

'The Murder at the Diogenes Club':

Silence is golden at the Diogenes, Mycroft's Pall Mall club. You are only allowed to speak in the Stranger's Room. But for William St John Plunkett neither silence nor speech is an option any more. He is found dead at the bottom of the great staircase, blood and brains spattered all over the marble floor. Mycroft's health is failing, but he summons all his powers to resolve the murder mystery on his own doorstep...

'The Case of the Romanov Pearls':

The White Pearls of the Romanovs were among the most famous jewels in the world. Won at a late night gambling session at the Pushkin Club in St Petersburg, they eventually came into the possession of the British Duchess of Alcester as part of her dazzling jewel collection. One evening they are stolen from her neck at the Majestic Hotel in Brighton. Luckily for her Mycroft Holmes is a guest at the same hotel...
