Out in the damp London streets, at the river wharf, and in his comfortable flat at 221-B Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes is at work on a puzzling new case. In addition to his faithful friend Watson, Holmes has enlisted the cooperation of some ragged street urchins known as the “Baker Street Irregulars.” Together they investigate the appearance in London of a derelict cargo ship and the poisonous giant rat of Sumatra, a royal kidnapping, the eruption of Krakatoa, and a pair of lethal pygmies.

“Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars is a rich mélange of familiar Homesiana and unlikely historical coincidences bound together in a slowly accelerating mystery of labyrinthine dimension.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune
