"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."

One Must Tell The Bees (2021)

The curious case of Sherlock Holmes and Abraham Lincoln by J. Lawrence Matthews.
When those harrowing words ring out during a children's entertainment in Washington on the evening of April 14, 1865, a quick-thinking young chemist from England named Holmes grabs the 12-year-old son of the dying President, races the boy to safety, and soon finds himself enlisted in the most infamous manhunt in history. 
ONE MUST TELL THE BEES is the untold story of Sherlock Holmes's journey from the streets of London to the White House of Abraham Lincoln and, in company with a freed slave named after the dead President, the breathtaking pursuit and capture of John Wilkes Booth. It is the very first case of the man who would become known to the world as Sherlock Holmes, and as readers will discover, it will haunt him until his very last.
At a time when Western history is being reexamined and retold--and even the legacy of Abraham Lincoln, "the Great Emancipator," is questioned--ONE MUST TELL THE BEES is a timely reminder that our history deserves to be well understood before it is entirely undone.
