This ingenious reworking of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s infamous mysteries sends brilliant detective Mycroft Holmes to investigate a mystery in the deserts of the American West.
His name is Mycroft, not Sherlock, although it’s easy to understand why people get them mixed up. Both are brilliant detectives with minds that seem to contain every bit of information known to man. And both show remarkable interest in beekeeping, tobacco ash, and the fine of art of murder. Even so, they are not the same person—which is a shame, because Mycroft Holmes is chasing a fiendish killer, and his younger brother, Sherlock, would certainly enjoy the hunt.
The search for the mysterious Mr. Intil takes Mycroft to the distant land known as Los Angeles, where his old friend Sydney Silchester has made a new life for himself as a codebreaker. In the strangest city on earth, Sydney and Mycroft’s investigation will take on a deadly spiritual dimension.
Fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle will find author H. F. Heard’s Mycroft Holmes no less brilliant than his younger brother, Sherlock. These classic golden-age mysteries are some of the most unique detective stories of all time.
