This is a collection of the first three stories written by the English author Dick Gillman. In these stories, he introduces the character of Julia Moriarty. Holmes and Watson become acutely aware of her existence in 1894 in the story aptly recorded by Watson as that of ‘The Shadow of James Moriarty’.

Only Holmes's unique skills of observation and deduction coupled with swift action can halt a very public assassination and avert war in Europe.
