The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes (Softcover)
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is a series of stories in which the great detective uses his superior deductive powers. In THE RED-HEADED LEAGUE, Holmes finds that an unusually large amount of gold Napoleons are the reason a group of thieves express a keen interest in a particular bank. Whereas, in THE ADVENTURE OF THE SPECKLED BAND, a young woman's sister dies suspiciously - her last words: 'it was...the speckled band'. Holmes deduces what the 'speckled band' is and, in his inimitable way, penetrates many other mysterious, strange and sometimes frightening events.

J.M. Gregson / Andrew Wincott

Superintendent John Lambert finds that a round of golf is the perfect diversion, especially when he's beating - and offering patronising tips to - his sergeant, Bert Hook. Hook isn't having much fun, but when he tops a ball horribly, he comes across something far, far more horrible lying in a ditch. The dead young woman, it turns out, was not only a drug dealer, but she was also on the game. These things left her vulnerable to the animosity of some of society's darkest and most secretive characters. For one thing, she had just decided to give up dealing and the powers that be were not amused...

Jack Ludlow / Jonathan Keeble

The Byzantine Empire rules in Southern Italy, but the indigenous populations are restless. The Lombards are no exception to this. One of their number, Arduin of Fassano, is appointed by a young Byzantine general to hold the key to Apulia. He is unaware that Arduin intends to join his Lombard brethren and rise up in revolt, hiring to aid him the Norman mercenaries of Campania. Led by William de Hauteville, the eldest of five mercenary brothers, the Normans cross into Apulia intent on more than aiding revolt: they are seeking land and titles for themselves. Will the might of the Byzantine Empire crush Arduin's Lombard revolt? Or will the treachery that stalks the lands favour the Normans?
