Sherlock Holmes and the Napped Children
by Phillip Duke
Blonde and blue-eyed little girls are being (kid)napped in broad daylight, and Police Inspector of Scotland Yard Lestrade has no choice but to ask Sherlock Holmes for assistance. Holmes soon deduces how the children were spirited away without being seen,. and with the Police sets a trap for the napper. He is caught, but takes poison, and the napped children are evidently lost.
There is no evidence regarding the children's location, but Holmes hits upon a very unusual and novel method to locate them. The method requires Watson's help, and with Holmes and Watson both employing it, is successful. The children are rescued, and the case is solved. Holmes directs Watson to write it up, but being far from satisfied with his investigation, which almost resulted in the children being lost., directs that it not be published until "a hundred years after my death, when much that is a mystery now, will be clear as crystal then."
The case was weitten up and consigned to a safe lock box in the Bank of England's vault. During the course of two world wars it became lost, but was recently recovered and published. Now for the first time ever you can read "The Case Of Sherlock Holmes and the Napped Children." This is often considered to be Sherlock Holmes's most unusual case, due to the very unusual and novel method employed to solve it. Or does the method, which Holmes conceived and executed, make it perhaps his most brilliant case as well?
