Sherlock Holmes: The Flight Collection by Pennie Mae Cartawick contains three short Sherlock Holmes stories by this author. Included are: The Case of the Missing Mayan Codices; Murders on the Voyage to India; and The Heist. All three are true to character, imaginative and entertaining. In the first story, irreplaceable authentic early Mayan Codices are missing, and Holmes is called upon to find and return them. Next, Holmes and Watson are aboard ship en route to India, ostensibly for a vacation, but a number of murders on board the ship pit Holmes’ gray matter against certain inconsistencies in the clues. Third, The Heist takes place in a London bank; the bank is robbed, but it appears nothing was taken. Of course, appearances can be deceiving, but why would someone steal an apple? All three of these short stories provide just the right length and depth expected in a good Sherlock adventure.

Sherlock Holmes: The Flight Collection presents Sherlock Holmes fans with three new, authentic Holmes mysteries to enjoy. Cartawick possesses an aptitude for contriving knotty mysteries only Sherlock Holmes could unravel; the shorts in this collection convincingly demonstrate that proficiency. Each of these stories is original, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s characters are faithfully reproduced. The perplexing clues Holmes uncovers while solving these three mysteries are as intricate as any in the original Holmes adventures. If you enjoy Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes short stories, you will want to read this collection. The mysteries in this collection are worthy fodder for the great Sherlock’s incomparable mind, and Holmes fans will not hesitate to give this collection a place in their libraries.
