The Clerkenwell Shadow

First Published:

21 May 2019

A young woman is being followed through the streets of London. Who is this mysterious stalker, why is he shadowing her, and can Sherlock Holmes stop him?

A traditional Sherlock Holmes story in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

The collection including this story was funded through a very successful Kickstarter campaign.

What People Are Saying:

The “damsel in distress” theme is a recurring one in the Holmes tales, and this one is a fine example.

The authors are donating the royalties to projects at Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s former home, Undershaw. The building was in terrible disrepair and was saved from destruction by the Undershaw Preservation Trust (patron Mark Gatiss). Today the building is the new home of Stepping Stones (a school for children with learning difficulties) and has being lovingly restored to its former glory. Royalties will go to Stepping Stones for specific projects such as the new literary program.
