Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615858643, Paperback)

In The Hound of the Baskervilles, Dr. John Watson writes about Sherlock Holmes' "famous investigation of the sudden death of Cardinal Tosca--an inquiry which was carried out by him at the express desire of His Holiness the Pope." The express wishes of Sherlock Holmes, as expressed in a written note on the outside of an envelope, have been ignored, in order to bring this case before the public. 
"...sealed with a wax seal and the impression of a signet ring with the initial 'S'. On the back flap were written, in that splendidly sprawling but legible hand with which I am now familiar, the words 'Not to be opened before September 25, 2014'."
 Hugh Ashton has written five highly acclaimed collections of Sherlock Holmes' adventures (the "Deed Box" and "Dispatch Box" series), as well as a Sherlock Holmes novel, The Darlington Substitution, all in the style of the originals by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to whom he has been favourably compared by critics. 
 
Grateful acknowledgment to Conan Doyle Estate Ltd. for permission to use the Sherlock Holmes characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
