In the fourth and final book in the Before Watson series, Sherlock Holmes and his companion and assistant, Dr. Poppy Stamford, embark on their greatest adventure yet. They are charged with solving not one case but three. One involves bogus charges against Poppy´s former stable boy. The second is their attempt to stop a wave of crime perpetrated by the Elephant Gang, the famous and ruthless girls´ gang that terrorized London in the nineteenth century. The third is an investigation into who burglarized the brothel owned by Maggie May, a mysterious woman with a keen mind and a treasure trove of secrets. During this time, Poppy also faces great losses and the promise of a new life - if she can bring herself to give up her quest to capture Sherlock´s intransigent heart.

With her parents´ guidance, she hopes to safely guide her son through puberty and his first volatile transition from boy to beast. Grizzly shifter Stuart Watson wasn´t looking for love while campaigning for reelection as county sheriff. However, there was no denying he´d met his match after his first encounter with Lila. The feisty brunette is everything he ever wanted in a woman. All he has to do is convince his reluctant mate and her rebellious son to give him a chance to prove his worth. Before Stuart can stake his claim, Lila´s life is endangered by the person she loves most. He races to rescue his mate, determined to save the day and safeguard their future. 1. Language: English.

Dr. Watson´s introduction to this Holmes case among the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, entitled ´´The Adventure of Silver Blaze´´ (Strand magazine, December 1892) is succinct and impossible to improve upon: ´´There was but one problem before the public which could challenge his powers of analysis, and that was the singular disappearance of the favourite for the Wessex Cup, and the tragic murder of its trainer.´´ As the story unfolds, we are taken along for a ride that is constantly on the move across moors, woods, through stables, and a landscape of characters and voices that is rich and evocative of an age of sports rivalries we can fondly recall long after they have passed from the scene. 1.

(2015/Sundazed) 16 tracks. Selected from the crown jewels of the rich King-Federal-DeLuxe discography, King Strings features rocking, socking guitar instrumentals from the Cincinnati-based family of labels cut between 1949 and 1962, programmed for power! Fashioned as a vintage King LP from the era and containing a killer line-up of the biggest talents the stable of labels offered, this is the historic various artists collection that should have been issued circa 1962. King was central to the underlying creative flow in R&B during the era, and the recordings here show the depth of style and synergy that the label routinely captured on vinyl. From the proto-funk groove of Hooker’s ´´Stomp Boogie” (under the pseudonym Texas Slim) to two cuts of Baker magic captured in Paris over a decade later, and including key cuts from Freddy King, Albert King, Johnny ´´Guitar” Watson and many others in between, you’ll individually hear a variety of instruments, tones and techniques, but together the clear, common artistry of the players’ sovereign ability, sequenced like a long, climactic solo—this is the sound of some of the most heralded talent of the guitar generation! Includes a rich, detailed insert with rare photos and extensive liner notes by Colin Escott. Join six-string soul royalty for a showcase from the company that called itself The King of Them All!
