Sherlock Holmes and the Ghost of Baker Street

By Val Andrews

Greg Hargreaves is an Australian-American writer, struggling to make ends meet by selling scripts to movie producers. But his career takes a nose-dive when he receives an invitation to give evidence before a division of the Un-American Activities Committee, in the midst of the ‘red scare’ of the fifties.

On the advice of a friend he moves to London, arriving alone with nothing but a small suitcase, a wad of cash, and a typewriter.

He eventually settles on a set of rooms on Baker Street, being let remarkably cheaply. On first inspection, Hargreaves marvels at his good fortune. It’s only when he’s taking his morning coffee that the reason behind the cheap rooms becomes transparent: They are haunted by the ghost of Sherlock Holmes.

Hargreaves is delighted at the discovery. Holmes tells him all about his previous adventures with Doctor Watson and proves quite inspirational for the plot of a detective movie. Soon, however, events take a dark turn, and Sherlock finds himself tasked with clearing his new flatmate of a violent murder. A task made all the trickier by the fact that he is no longer alive.

Sherlock Holmes: The Ghost of Baker Street is a light-hearted treat for Sherlock enthusiasts that will keep you guessing until the very last page.
