Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure Of The Primal Man

by Derrick Belanger

London 1901.

The city is in the grip of ‘Monkey Man Mania’.

Intrepid explorer, Drake Patterson has caused a media storm following his astonishing discovery of a frozen ancient man in the remote Himalayan mountains.

This ‘Primal Man’ has been triumphantly transported back to England as proof of the ‘missing link’ in evolutionary theory.

The upcoming auction of the specimen causes a stir amongst academics and the board of the British Museum.

Whilst many are excited about bidding for this ‘yeti’, or ‘mi-go’, there are some with a more sceptical viewpoint.

The story of the find just doesn’t add up – neither does the fact that no one is prepared to insure the beast.

Enter the great detective Sherlock Holmes and his loyal friend Dr Watson.

Sherlock is in no doubt about the Primal Man’s authenticity and takes great pleasure in enlisting the assistance of his cousin, Professor Ellington Dynamo to prove the case.

The fraud investigation takes a dark turn when it becomes one of murder, and Sherlock’s powers of deduction and skill are once again put to the test in this exciting adventure.

Full of the skulduggery and surprises you would expect from a Sherlock story, and with the fearsome Professor Dynamo and his delightful inventions to boot, The Adventure of the Primal Man will not fail to please.

â??One thing is certain – nothing is as it seems, and Sherlock Holmes is the man to solve the case.’ David Marcum, author of The Papers of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes and A Quantity of Debt, and Sherlock Holmes – Tangled Skeins

â??Noted Sherlock Holmes author, Derrick Belanger, has outdone himself again. â?¦ a creative tour de force full of mystery, murder, bullet-less guns and electric super-cars shaped like torpedoes.’ GC Rosenquist, author of Sherlock Holmes: The Pearl of Death and Other Early Stories

â??This excellent read from Derrick Belanger is sure to delight and enthral, not only fans of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, but will also excite and entertain the enthusiasts of general science fiction and Steampunk.’ Chuck Davis, author of Phantoms of the Skies, and the Sherlock Holmes short story “The Adventure of the White Bird” in The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories.

â??Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Watson and Professor Dynamo are together in one thrilling adventure!’ Luke Kuhns, author of Sherlock Holmes and The Scarlet Thread of Murder and The Untold Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
