Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Ingeniously contrived and shrewdly executed by some of the finest talents at work in crime fiction today--Anne Perry, Loren Estleman, Gillian Linscott, Edward D. Hoch, Peter Tremayne, Stuart Kaminsky, Jon L. Breen, Bill Crider, Howard Engel, Carolyn Wheat, and L. B. Greenwood--the eleven stories in this premier volume celebrate the keen mind, ratiocinative methods, and singular manners of the most admired fictional sleuth of all time, Sherlock Holmes. More than a century has passed since the first appearance of Sherlock Holmes, yet no literary detective before or since has inspired the loyalty and devotion of such legions of fans--not least among them the popular mystery writers who pay tribute to him in the stories they have authored especially for this collection. In these tales the inscrutable Holmes and his redoubtable companion, Dr. Watson, again display at their peerless best the science and arts of detection, whether they are investigating a crime in the wilds of Africa or uncovering villainy in the heart of London, whether it's the case of the bloodless sock or that of the vampire's mark. So, return again to the comfortable clutter of those rooms at 221B Baker Street and again observe Holmes in an old silk dressing gown, his gaze piercing and his fingers stained with chemicals or ink, as he peruses a telling trifle or takes up his violin. Again enjoy the unparalleled powers of his deduction, in eleven totally new, compelling adventures.
