"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch-box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes has at various times to examine."

The Pandora Plague (1981)

The Pandora Plague by Lee A. Matthias was first published as a mass market paperback from Leisure Books (below). Because of financial problems, the publisher only gave it a limited release. It later appeared as a trade paperback from Unicorn Press cut down by 8000 words. The author self-published a revised and expanded 3rd edition in 2009.

The theft of a seemingly innocuous pocket watch, and the appearance of a small and mystifying heavy box, began Sherlock Holmes' most challenging case. In an attempt to open the box, Holmes requested the presence of master magician Harry Houdini. 
Soon, a series of puzzling events accelerated into a crisis of shocking importance, and Holmes, Houdini and Dr. Watson were drawn into the evil machinations of a hideously sinister plot. 
Holmes' abilities were pushed beyond their limits, and a startling discovery by Madame Curie told the great detective that the world's fate rested in his hands!
