Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0989455114, Paperback)

This multi-volume work of over 820,000 words and seven volumes explores once and for all the true nature of the relations between Sherlock Holmes and his arch-nemesis Professor James Moriarity. It also explores the relations between the brothers of Sherlock Holmes, Sherringford and Mycroft and the tragic loss of Holmes' mother to tuberculosis, a disease that later plagued the detective's own life. Included also in The Confessions is the story of the lost years of the Great Hiatus when Sherlock Holmes traveled in Tibet, Persia and Africa and did chemical research in France. The later volumes take Holmes and Watson to America where they meet again the diva, Irene Adler, who was always referred to as ìthe woman by the great detective. Told in a unique entwined method Holmes and Watson each tell a separate story throughout the book which was compiled between the war years of 1914 to 1917 as his last legacy by an aging Dr. Watson. With its extensive elaboration of the deepest questions of life and death, The Confessions of Sherlock Holmes is truly epic in scope and conception. Read on now for the game is afoot. Thomas Mengert, the author of The Confessions of Sherlock Holmes series of books is an attorney and consultant in systems theory with a Master's Degree in English Literature from the University of Washington. His interest in Sherlock Holmes has been lifelong. While still in college he founded the Sherlockian society, The Victorian Gentlemen, and edited and published The Victorian Journal. Mr. Mengert's interest in the mysterious and inscrutable later led him to do his Master's Degree research on James Joyce's epic verbal tapestry, Finnegans Wake. The Confessions of Sherlock Holmes now takes its place as the most extensive and complete explication ever undertaken in order to elaborate and explain in a single narrative the man whom his Boswell, Dr. John H. Watson, has described as the best and wisest man whom I have ever known.
