“Case of Unfinished Business” Short Story is Now Available!



It is that dreadful May of 1891, the start of the The Great Hiatus, and Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson find themselves dealing with some unresolved problems in “A Case of Unfinished Business.”

The world believes Holmes died defeating Professor James Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls, but the war to stop the evil genius’ criminal empire rages on. Moriarty’s death triggers a plan that threatens three continents and a mysterious government agent needs Watson’s help to solve a clue Holmes left behind to prevent this catastrophe.

This new short story adapts my audio script for “A Case of Unfinished Business” that was originally broadcast by Imagination Theatre in 2014. The production was produced by the late radio personality and entrepreneur Jim French and starred John Patrick Lowrie as Holmes and Lawrence Albert as Dr. John H. Watson.

The story appears in The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part XX: 2020 Annual (1891 – 1897). This new edition of the popular anthology series from MX Publishing is now available and includes three volumes edited by master Sherlockian David Marcum that also covers The Great Detective’s career from 1882-1890 (Part XIX) and 1898-1923 (Part XXI) as he encounters seemingly impossible events.

According to MX Publishing: “The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories burst upon the scene in 2015 featuring adventures written by many of the world’s leading Sherlockian authors, and since then its popularity has continued to grow.” All royalties from this collection are being donated by the writers for the benefit of the preservation of Undershaw, one of the former homes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, currently the home of Stepping Stones School, a school for children with special needs.
