After narrowly escaping a bomb blast during the Blitz, poet Jack Crofton is threatened with death and worse by a mysterious soldier. Fleeing through the war-torn streets of London, he seeks sanctuary in a pub and falls into company with two elderly gentlemen who claim to be Holmes and Watson, the real life detectives who inspired Conan Doyle's famous fictions. Unconvinced but desperate, Jack shares his story, and Holmes agrees to take his case...

Simon Clark is the author of several acclaimed novels including The Night of the Triffids--the official sequel to John Wyndham's classic The Day of the Triffids--and is widely acknowledged as one of the most original voices in modern dark fiction and horror.
