The Oriental Casebook of Sherlock Holmes Nine Adventures from the Lost Years

By Riccardi, Ted

New York: Random House. Fine. 2003. Advance Review Copy. Softcover. 1400060656 . Unmarked book in crisp covers; 1.08 x 9.78 x 6.5 Inches; 303 pages; Sherlock Holmes is dead&#8212;or so most of the world thinks. His fatal plunge over the Reichenbach Falls as he struggled with his archenemy, Moriarty, has been widely reported. <br><br>But Holmes has escaped and is alive.<br><br>In his immediate circle, only Holmes&#8217;s brother, the lethargic genius Mycroft, knows of his survival. Even Dr. Watson thinks that the great detective is dead. Among his enemies, Sebastian Moran, Moriarty&#8217;s chief henchman, knows of Holmes&#8217;s probable escape and waits for their inevitable meeting.<br><br>From 1891 to 1894, Holmes wanders through Asia. He is alone, without Watson, without Scotland Yard, armed only with his physical strength and endur-ance and his revered cold logic and rationality. <br><br>The adventures recounted in The Oriental Casebook of Sherlock Holmes range from Lhasa to Katmandu, from the East Indies to the deserts of Rajasthan. In Tibet and throughout the Orient, Holmes is caught up in the diplomatic machinations of British imperialism that Rudyard Kipling dubbed &#8220;the Great Game.&#8221; He confronts the tsarist agent Dorjiloff, the great art thief Anton Furer, and the mysterious Captain Fantôme. And here, written in Holmes&#8217;s own words, is the account of &#8220;The Giant Rat of Sumatra,&#8221; for which until now he so famously thought the world unprepared.<br><br>For Holmes&#8217;s fans throughout the world, the stories in The Oriental Casebook of Sherlock Holmes fill in an enigmatic gap, the cause of so much speculation in the great detective&#8217;s career. .

The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B

By Gulland, Sandra

New York: Scribner & Company. Near Fine. 1999. Advance Review Copy. Softcover. 0684856069 . Stiff clean book in crisp covers with slight tilt at top of binding. ; 0.98 x 8.04 x 5.32 Inches; 439 pages; In this first of three books inspired by the life of Josephine Bonaparte, Sandra Gulland has created a novel of immense and magical proportions. We meet Josephine in the exotic and lush Martinico, where an old island woman predicts that one day she will be queen. The journey from the remote village of her birth to the height of European elegance is long, but Josephine's fortune proves to be true. By way of fictionalized diary entries, we traverse her early years as she marries her one true love, bears his children, and is left betrayed, widowed, and penniless. It is Josephine's extraordinary charm, cunning, and will to survive that catapults her to the heart of society, where she meets Napoleon, whose destiny will prove to be irrevocably intertwined with hers.<P> .

Numbered Account

By Reich, Christopher

New York: Delacorte Press. Near Fine. 1998. Advance Review Copy. Softcover. 0385320175 . Tight bright unmarked book with slight impressions to front cover. ; 1.75 x 10 x 6.5 Inches; 487 pages; In his explosive debut thriller, Christopher Reich tells the harrowing story of a young man willing to risk everything--his career, his integrity, and even his life--to hunt down his father's killer. Set in the secret, labyrinthine world of Swiss banking, <i>Numbered Account,</i> with its detail and intelligence, could have been written only by an insider--the author himself worked at a major Swiss bank for three years. <br><br>Former U.S. marine and Harvard Business School graduate Nicholas Neumann seems to have it all: a dream job, a beautiful fiancée, a future bright with promise. But beneath the dazzling veneer of this golden boy is a man haunted by the brutal killing of his father seventeen years before. And when new evidence implicates the venerable United Swiss Bank in the crime, Nick finds himself willing to do whatever it takes to uncover the truth.<br><br>Leaving behind everything he holds dear, Nick takes a job in Zurich with the United Swiss Bank, and is soon plunged into a world where everything--loyalty, power, even life and death--can be bought and sold for the right price.  As the secrets of the venerable bank are laid bare, suddenly Nick knows far too much--about the offer he never should have accepted, about the money he never should have handled, about the woman he never should have loved. And as the darkness gathers around him, Nick is faced with a shattering truth: To catch the criminal who murdered his father, he must become a criminal himself.<br><br>A work of searing intelligence and sheer storytelling genius, <i>Numbered Account</i> is one of those rare thrillers that not only make you sweat, but make you think. .
