The Scroll Of The Dead!
The Scroll of the Dead by David Stuart Davies is a rock-solid Sherlock Holmes adventure which takes the detective and his companion Watson from the friendly confines of 221 B Baker Street to remote island haunts in pursuit of an ancient Egyptian secret which some believe can bring men back from the grave.
Davies does an especially excellent job in this one of creating an adversary worthy of Sherlock's time and energy. It's too bad that Sebastian Melmoth is not canon as he is most certainly worthy of inclusion. This one has more than its share of action as the pursuit of the secret and the villains take Sherlock to parts unknown.
This is a real rip-snorter!
