v The Third Reich
What is the greatest secret in Nuremberg?
Revealed for the first time the great detective's role in WW11.
Germany and Great Britain are in the fog of the phoney war. The First
Sea Lord Winston Churchill knows that England is not nearly ready for
the fight. Four British spies have perished in strange circumstances
in Nuremberg trying to discover the biggest secret of the Third Reich.
Churchill turns to the only man he knows who can solve the mystery.
But Lord Sherlock Holmes is now 83, Dr Watson even older. Are they still
up to it? They must cross the Channel, pretend to be German sympathisers.
If caught, England will disown them. Holmes accepts the challenge; indeed
he has been awaiting the call. They will solve the mystery, or die in
the attempt. Two ancient men of England and one beautiful nurse Cornelia
Hainsely enter enemy territory. Their loyalty will be tested, more than
once, and there is no one they can trust. The secret of Nuremberg is
far more sinister than even Holmes could imagine; their chances of getting
back alive, very slim indeed

The Curse of the Nibelung- A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
available from Amazon and
other on-line booksellers. Printed in the USA and UK
as a hardback with Arlington under a pseudonym (Marcel D'Agneau). The
publisher held on tight to it and just wouldn't give it back. Fortunately
death parted the book from his determined grip and now, following revision,
it is at last available again to everyone in paperback. I am particularly
happy to have it published in America, for the book was never available
there the first time around. I hope they like it there as much as British
readers have over the years. (Battered copies of the original are still
in UK libraries or trading on Ebay). I hope a new generation of readers
find the book at Lulu Press and enjoy it as well.'

are some of the original reviews for The Curse of the Nibelung
The triumphant return of Holmes and Watson. Eric Hiscock -
Chocolate will never seem quite the same again. With an irresistable,
high-quality Goon-like zaniness, this dynamically-paced thriller follows
its own lager-than-life logic. Not to be missed. - Richard Pearce
Supremely enchanting John Stonehouse -Books
A splendid spoof, even better than the authors earlier parody of
Le Carré, Eeny Meeny Miny Mole. Francis Geoff
Ingenious. So well crafted that the entertainment value is not in
doubt. Others will certainly try to update Holmes and do far less well.
Follow that, as they say.
