In this imaginary, chronological collection of private journal entries by Dr. James Mortimer, his colleagues and friends-Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson-are brought to life once again.
Picking up where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle left off in the classic Holmes adventure Hound of the Baskervilles, Dr. Mortimer's gift for captivating storytelling shines through as he vividly pens his recollections of a lively cast of characters that lived in his day including Sir Henry Baskerville and Reverend Warts. He recounts many memories of his times with the quirky pair including when he viewed a Sherlock Holmes case story before his friend Dr. Watson filed it away in his battered dispatch box and when Holmes systematically found the hidden headquarters of the "Napoleon of Crime." Dr. Mortimer follows Watson as he wags the astounding details of each Holmes adventure, sharing the highlights of a truly remarkable duo, that together, were able to solve case after case with a creative prowess that no detective has been able to duplicate since.
In a journal that became his everlasting bedtime companion, Mortimer holds a magnifying glass up to his life and lets the world view his devotion to his beloved friends, Watson and Holmes. Mortimer is fun, irascible, and multi-layered.
