Whatever your fancy in the polished old world of deductive detective cunning-- a mummified human hand conspiciously resting in an intarsia box, a haunted moonlit library, a tattered corpse caught up in a rapacious invincible curse-- Solar Pons will quickly capture your curiosity and leave you hungering for more.
Soon you will find yourself a regular visitor at No. 7B Praed Street, eagerly peering into the mind of the contemplative Pons, slouched in the cozy cavern of his armchair. And as you faithfully follow the master about charming, chilling fin-de-ciecle London, discretely clutching and unclutching your hands between counter plots and climaxes, you know that you have found a lifelong companion-- the incomparable and brilliant Solar Pons, heir to the genius that was once uniquely Sherlock Holmes'.
