A remote country estate. A gathering of strangers. A shocking murder.

Watson is invited to visit an old rural home, along with a variety of other guests, connected by their interest in art and literature. As he is introduced to the guests one by one, Watson soon learns there is more about these men that meets the eye.

The tension heightens when one of the guests is found dead in one of the rooms of the cavernous house. With no sign of intrusion, accusations and anger flare up among the strangers. Watson calls in Holmes to get to the bottom of this most mysterious murder.

Sherlock Holmes and the Telephone Murder Mystery is the third of John Hall's Sherlockian pastiches and a brilliant addition to the Holmes and Watson casebooks.

John Hall spent many years in the civil service before becoming a professional writer specialising in crime fiction. His book Death of a Collector won the Sherlock Magazines competition for the best new fictional detective. He is also the author of several other Sherlock mysteries.
