Harold White has just been received into the exclusive Sherlock Holmes society known as the Baker Street Irregulars. You cannot join the group. You must be nominated by someone already in the group and you must have published about Sherlock Holmes or Arthur Conan Doyle. Outside of the Reception for his induction ceremony, Harold is introduced to the infamous Sherlockian, Alex Cale. Alex has hinted that he has found the lost diary of Arthur Conan Doyle.
The next day, when Alex fails to show for his presentation, Harold and others flock to his room to find him dead in the manner of a Sherlock Holmes character. Who might have killed Alex Cale? And was it for the alleged lost diary that he found? Relatives of Conan Doyle hire Harold to try and find out who killed Alex and where is the diary? The search will send him to London, Switzerland and New York.
In the meantime, every other chapter follows the fictional exploits of Arthur Conan Doyle and his good friend Bram Stoker as they try and figure out some murders during their lives. These adventures supposedly make up the time in the lost diary. Is it possible that Conan Doyle destroyed the diary because he did not want it to get into the wrong hands?
This is all part of the fun of The Sherlockian, a great read for mystery lovers and Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts.
