Summary
A colonel receives five seeds in the mail--and dies within weeks. A young bride disappears immediately after her wedding. An old hat and a Christmas goose are the only clues to a stolen jewel.

No case is too tricky for the world's most famous sleuth and his incredible powers of deduction.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 6-12. Moser's illustrations for the Books of Wonder series have included his scary gothic pictures for Poe's stories [BKL Ag 91]. Here, in keeping with the more cerebral, daytime world of Sherlock Holmes, the watercolors for each of the 12 adventures are mostly portraits of gentlemen, full-faced and clear. Holmes is in control, alert, formidably intelligent, a listener. Dr. Watson is open and decent, no secrets to hide. Perhaps most interesting is the portrait of author Doyle, compulsively neat in his army uniform, moustache waxed in place, blue eyes burning. ~--Hazel Rochman"
