The Reichenbach Problem

Full Product Description

Conan Doyle is on the run from the fame of his own creation: the great Victorian detective whose cult following has given the fictional character a life of his own; Sherlock Holmes. There are, after all, he reflects, only so many times one can reply politely to shouts of ‘Elementary, my dear Watson!’ from perfect strangers one passes on the high street.

Switzerland, and the remote peaks and valleys of the Reichenbach falls, seems to offer the celebrity author a respite from the invasion of his private life, and an escape from those residents of Baker Street who seem to dog his every step; as though he himself was some kind of felon.

But danger, mystery and intrigue seem to have crossed the boundary between fiction and reality to shatter the peace and solitude Doyle so desperately seeks. Not only is he plunged into a real life murder mystery, among a collection of dark and shady characters, the writer finds the he himself is a prime suspect. With one of the locals convinced that he is the incarnation of Doyle’s creation, even the author’s mental state is in danger of falling as the next victim of the crime.

Author Martin Allison is a lifelong Holmes enthusiast and now a parish priest. His novel honours the great tradition of Conan Doyle and is a new and exciting treat for followers of the eccentric genius’ crime solving adventures.

The Reichenbach Problem by Martin Allison Booth was published by Lion Hudson in March 2013 and is our 16971st best seller. The ISBN for The Reichenbach Problem is 9781782640165.

Publisher's Description

'I was still not quite sure when, exactly, my disinclination towards people began. I know, though, that it had a great deal to do with the bane of my life - the great Mr Sherlock Holmes.' Just as Conan Doyle is starting to reap the rewards from the publication of his Sherlock Holmes short stories, he decides to kill him off. What led him to this? While enjoying a much-needed holiday in the Swiss Alps, Conan Doyle hears of the tragic death of a fellow Briton. Should he get involved? And why is he being followed by Holloway, one of his greatest fans? What are the duties of a celebrity?
