A dynamic short story collection that illuminates many hidden corners of the Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series.

Nine previously published short stories and one brand new, never-before-seen Sherlock Holmes mystery—available together for the first time. After an “Appreciation” by noted Sherlockian Leslie S. Klinger, Laurie R. King blends her long-running brand of crime fiction with historical treats and narrative sleight of hand, from a prequel novella of Mary Russell’s teenage diaries to the real story of how Miss Russell came to send her Memoirs to Laurie R. King, from Mrs. Hudson’s own investigation to a tale of young Russell’s beloved Uncle Jake–and, a Christmas investigation by Sherlock Holmes and his very young assistant.
