The Mycroft Holmes Omnibus

(A book in the Mycroft Holmes series)
An omnibus of novels by

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 hard-to-solve case comes along, Inspector Lestrade turns instead to Sherlock's reclusive but highly intelligent older brother Mycroft.

'The Mycroft Holmes Omnibus' collects together for the first time three of David Dickinson's best-selling Mycroft Holmes detective adventures.

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?

From his prison cell Mycroft Holmes turns the great engines of his mental powers onto the problem, assisted by the convict who runs the prison, Chalky The Shotgun White. The game's afoot. But time is short... .

'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?

Praise for the Mycroft Holmes series:

'The stories are atmospheric, fast-moving, ingenious and very enjoyable.' - Roger Johnson, The District Messenger

David Dickinson's books have been widely praised:

'A cracking yarn, beguilingly real from start to finish... you have to pinch yourself to remind you that it is fiction - or is it?' - Peter Snow

'This is detective fiction in the grand style; the characters and the plot soar upwards and carry us in their wake. Powerscourt's debut in this intoxicating book is the start of a gilded life in the archives of crime.' - James Naughtie

'In this excellent novel, Dickinson weaves a tale of blackmail and murder among the royals late in Victoria's reign... One hopes to see more of Lord Powerscourt and his friends in the near future.' - Publishers Weekly
