Before Dr Watson, there was Mr Stamford…

London, 1876

Mr Stamford meets Sherlock Holmes while studying at St Bartholomew’s Medical College in London. With his intense stare and unorthodox methods of doing things, Holmes has already gained a reputation as an eccentric but brilliant man.

When suspected intruders are sighted at the British Museum, Holmes is called upon to give his opinion of what happened.

But before he can come to any conclusions, something horrifying happens – one of the great treasures of the world, the priceless Rosetta Stone, is stolen from the museum.

The thieves have left a note demanding a ransom. And if it is not fulfilled they threaten to cast the Stone into the ocean so it can never be found again.

With the police on the wrong track, it is down to Holmes to solve the complex case. And when the burglary case turns into a murder investigation, it becomes a race against time before more victims are killed.

SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE ROSETTA STONE MYSTERY is the first Victorian crime thriller in the Early Casebook of Sherlock Holmes series.

‘Linda Stratmann is
renowned for her knowledge of the Victorian period and this skill is apparent in the authenticityof the historical detail in this book. The plot is convincing as a Holmes’ mystery and the characterisation is excellent. The introduction of Stamford as an engaging new narrator is a brilliant innovation, which works better than contemporary attempts to replicate the narrative style of Doctor Watson. This mystery is the most authentic recreation of a Sherlock Holmes story that I have read. A fascinating read, which I recommend’ – Carol Westron forMystery People

Hats off, then, to Linda Stratmann for her rather wonderful Sherlock Holmes and the Rosetta Stone Mystery. The Sherlock Holmes she presents us with is a convincing representation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s and the style is remarkably similar.' - Tom Williams for Historia
