Summary (From the publisher):

The Shadows of Sherlock Holmes is a fascinating collection of stories featuring detectives, criminal agents and debonair crooks from the golden age of crime fiction: a time when Sherlock Holmes was ensconced in his rooms at 221B Baker Street and London was permanently wreathed in a sinister fog. These gripping tales of mystery, suspense and clever puzzles are wonderfully entertaining and in them you will meet The Crime Doctor, Professor Augustus S.F.X. Van Dusen – The Thinking Machine, Max Carrados – the incredible blind detective, the repulsive but brilliant Skin o’My Teeth, and the natty, ingenious French sleuth Eugene Valmont. On the other side of the law, there are gentlemen crooks Raffles and Simon Carn – the Prince of Swindlers.
