July 1st is Canada Day and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate this great nation than to spend it with Sherlock Holmes in Canada.
The Canadian Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of adventures of the world’s greatest consulting detective as he travels across Canada in 1897 with his good friends and associate Dr. John Watson.
In Ottawa the London detective must navigate the rocky shoals of Canadian politics while in the service of Prime Minister Wilfred Laurier, in a case Watson entitles, "The Prime Minister’s Papers."
After solving the Montreal mystery of The McCormick Fortune, Holmes and Watson head west to Sir Henry Baskerville’s Alberta cattle ranch where Holmes and Watson encounter mystery upon mystery and a list of suspicious characters trying to solve the truth behind The Baskerville Curse.
In Cold-Hearted Murder, the great detective is drawn into mystery and murder revolving around a trio recently from the Klondike gold fields in the Yukon Territory where they made their fortune. But what had happened in that remote part of the world near the Arctic Circle? What strange occurrence took place in the Canadian wilderness that would plague: Patrick Flynn, the young handsome American, who was strong but too trusting; Charles Westerbrook, the not-overly honest Englishman, bent on making his fortune; Suzanne Bouchard, the beautiful French-Canadian seductress who used her wiles to get what she wanted.
When grotesque murders are committed during one of the hottest summers in London, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are drawn into the investigation. Cold-Hearted Murder is one of the most baffling and bizarre cases Sherlock Holmes has ever investigated. Why are the victims being monstrously mutilated? Why are they being murdered in cold locations? What is the significance of the Golden Triangle?
