“An interesting, yet brief, message,” Holmes mumbled, tapping the letter with the stem of his pipe. “We shall take the eight-seventeen out of Euston and head for the city of Carlisle, in the county of Cumberland, tomorrow.”
The daring theft of the Arroyo Drums from the Border Regiment brings Sherlock Holmes and the loyal Dr. Watson to Carlisle on their latest adventure.
Martin Daley has picked up Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s pen to communicate a case that has never before been brought to the notice of the public. This book is a must for all Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts as well as those with an interest in military history. To complement this publication there are many contemporary rare photographs of Carlisle where this mystery is set.
