"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 Meets Annie Oakley (1986)

Stanley Shaw's follow-up to his first Holmes pastiche, Sherlock Holmes at the 1902 Fifth Test. Unlike that first book, it appears this was only published as a hardcover.

The sensation of 1887 is the visit to London of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. The exploits of Buffalo Bill, Chief Red Shirt and the sharpshooting Annie Oakley are exciting everyone's imagination. But not that of Sherlock Holmes. Not even Doctor Watson's enthusiasm for the visitors can, it seems, save Holmes from the clutches of one of his profound depressions. Until, that is, a telegram arrives to summon the Great Detective to Windsor Great Park and a baffling mystery which will involve Holmes and Watson in the affairs of Annie Oakley, The 'Peerless Lady Wing-Shot' herself...
