Description
This collection of ten original Sherlock Holmes tales from various chroniclers brings light to one of the least examined periods in the life of the great detective—his youthful visits to the United States, before he had set upon his career or taken his famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street. In Darryl Brock's "My Silk Umbrella," Mark Twain narrates his fateful encounter with Holmes at a baseball game in Hartford, Connecticut; Steve Hockensmith describes the meeting of the young William Gillette and the object of his later, most famous turn upon the stage; and Peter Tremayne evokes the encounter of Holmes and the Irish in America's Midwest.

"Edgar finalist [Michael] Kurland's lively third Sherlock Holmes anthology (after 2004's Sherlock Holmes: The Hidden Years) chronicles the exploits of the fledgling sleuth in America, before he settled in Baker Street. Richard A. Lupoff gets the volume off to a strong start with 'Inga Sigerson Weds,' in which the adolescent Sherlock's cash-strapped parents send him and his jealous sister across the Atlantic to a distant cousin's New York City wedding. In Darryl Brock's witty 'My Silk Umbrella,' Holmes encounters Mark Twain at a Hartford baseball match. The detective meets another Connecticut luminary, P.T. Barnum, in Michael Mallory's droll 'The Sacred White Elephant of Mandalay'."—Publishers Weekly
