Book Description

The fifth and final novel in the Sherlock Holmes pantology by Stephen Lees. Holmes has been outwitted by two of the Titans, notably Messrs Holder and Stephenson, And they in turn had been pursued but are now thought to be dead. Some months have passed, but now, Andrew Carnegie, a wealthy industrial Titan, has cabled Holmes seeking his help and inviting him to Pittsburgh in order to determine a perceived but unidentifiable threat to his person. Holmes obliges, but is cautioned by Watson, who insists that Katherine, from Eureka Springs, in the Oklahoma Territory, accompanies them on their quest. Together, all three set out for America on a new adventure, still arising out of the sinking of the Titanic some months previously. During this adventure however, Holmes, Watson and Katherine, rather than hunting the eminence gris, find that they have now become the hunted, as the Titans vie with each other for ultimate industrial and financial power. The story culminates in a devastating revelation of treachery, deceit, and greed, all of which add even more mystery to our intrepid heroes' investigation. As usual, Lees' dense plotting is accompanied by a cornucopia of architectural detail and erudite musical discourse.

More About the Author

Stephen Lees is American but attended boarding school in England. Having graduated with a Law Degree from the University of East Anglia he went up to Lincoln's Inn in London to train as a Barrister.

Lees published the first volume in his epic pantology of novels about Sherlock Holmes - 'The Iron Mausoleum', a shocking account of the true story behind the sinking of the Titanic - in 2012. Four further volumes followed: 'The Iron Vault', 'The Iron Soul', 'The Iron Metropolis' and 'The Iron Titan'. The books are notable for their historical veracity and vivid descriptions of Victorian and Edwardian architecture, as well as the atmospheric descriptions of the seething underbelly of contemporary London, New York and Pittsburgh. They also contain a number of original line illustrations by the author.

Stephen Lees lives in London. He can usually be found at the bar in the Groucho Club. He aspires to membership of the Duquesne Club in Pittsburgh. His first non-fiction book 'Visions of Architecture' was published by Bloomsbury in 2011 and is about the construction process and why buildings are designed in a certain manner.
