Sherlock Holmes and the Alien Abduction
by Phillip Duke
A beautiful young lady of high station asks Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson to investigate the case of a man who, according to his sworn statement, was very strangely abducted and treated, and then released. Holmes wants to question him, but he dies before being contacted. The man was in good health, and there are no marks on the body, but Holmes brilliantly deduces the cause of death. With that the authorities are satisfied, and the case is formally closed. But there remains a loose end to the case, regarding elapsed travel time and speed, and with it an associated very disturbing possibility. Due to the loose end and disturbing possibility, Sherlock Holmes is far from satisfied, and directs Doctor Watson to write the case up, but not to publish it until "a full century after my death, when much that is unclear now, will be clear as crystal then."
The case was consigned to a lock box in the Bank of England's vault. During the course of two world wars it became lost, but was recently found, and is now published as an ebook. For the first time ever, you can now read this lost case of Sherlock Holmes. It is doubtful whether Sherlock Holmes ever displayed more brilliance in solving a case, but with the result of less personal satisfaction, than in the case of Sherlock Holmes and the Alien Abduction.
