"The new Sherlock Holmes novel" -- jacket.-One hundred years ago, after Holmes died, Dr Watson recorded their most sensational adventures, and left instructions the manuscript not be opened until now. It is November 1890 and London is gripped by a merciless winter. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are enjoying tea by the fire when a gentleman arrives at 221B Baker Street. He begs Holmes for help, telling the unnerving story of a scar-faced man who has been stalking him. Intrigued, Holmes and Watson find themselves swiftly drawn into a series of puzzling and sinister events, stretching from the gas-lit streets of London to the teeming criminal underworld of Boston. As the pair delve deeper into the case, they stumble across a whispered phrase -- 'The House of Silk': a mysterious entity and foe more deadly than any Holmes has encountered, and a conspiracy that threatens to tear apart the very fabric of society itself ..
