PRAISE FOR PAUL D. GILBERT’S SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE GIANT RAT OF SUMATRA:

“Since Sir Arthur created Sherlock Holmes, there have been many incarnations of him. I think Paul D. Gilbert’s work is the closest to the original.” K.G.A.

“Cracking good story with plenty of history, action and Holmes at his best.” Colin

“Every line is saturated in atmosphere, and conveys the very same feelings as Doyle’s original books. I couldn’t possibly compare any previous attempts, this is pure Sherlock.” Radulfus

“Extremely well written indeed. Every bit as engrossing as the original Holmes stories.” Kev

Autumn 1898. London. A scandal in the making.

Dockworkers are stunned by the arrival of the Matilda Briggs, a long overdue tea cutter returning from Calcutta. Abandoned by its crew, the dust-covered vessel has seems to have drifted into a vacant berth guided by an unseen hand.

The only member of the crew aboard is a lone cabin boy in the throes of death, following a murderous attack. The ship’s log has also vanished without a trace. All that remains is a series of indecipherable markings have been scratched into the ship’s decking.

Sherlock Holmes and his faithful Watson are called to divest the Matilda Briggs of its secrets, only to be subtly warned off by the ship’s insurers. Then a young man appears at 122B Baker Street with a mysterious packet from his missing father — who disappeared journeying to London from Calcutta. A confounding conspiracy seems set to boil over.

What was in the cargo besides innocent tea chests? Will the violence and rebellion that follow shift the tides from the favour of the Great Detective?

Is the world finally ready for this tale?
