"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."

Sherlock Holmes & the Case of the Twain Papers (2014)

Roger Riccard's follow-up to Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Poisoned Lilly finds the great detective working for a very famous writer (and I don't mean Conan Doyle).

"It may not seem much to you, Mr.Holmes. In fact, it may better gather the sympathies of Dr. Watson here. But, the truth of the matter is, someone has stolen my life." 
In the silence that followed this extraordinary statement, Clemens pulled out his cigar case and quietly asked, "Do y'all mind if I smoke, gentlemen?" 
So begins a case where visiting American author, Samuel Clemens (better known as Mark Twain), has come to Sherlock Holmes for assistance. Holmes and Watson set out to track down the thief among a myriad of guests staying at the famous Langham Hotel. 
Suspects abound, yet another pressing question arises for Dr. Watson. Will one of them, a woman from his past, steal his heart?
