The Adventure of the Old Campaigners

by James R. Wearne

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
An Action-Adventure story starring Dr. Watson, Sherlock Holmes and a surprising cast of characters.
Dr. Watson and his old friend Col. Pickering, together with Sherlock Holmes and Professor Henry Higgins, help Eliza Doolittle come to the aid of a friend in danger. The action takes place all over London, and even in a Japanese palace in Africa! Locations include Baker Street, Wimpole Street, the British Museum, the London slums, a bordello and the African forest. If you are intrigued at least by the implausibility of the premise, read the book and see that it all really happens, and comes together nicely. If you are a fan of the Sherlock Holmes stories you will enjoy this book. Even if you are not a fan, the sheer cheek of the premise and the novelty of the character mix will sustain your interest. This is an untypical Holmes-genre story that will please both devotees (at least those with a sense of humor) and the irreverent. Not since "The 7% Solution" have Holmes and Watson been in such good company!
