The Head And The Heart- A collection of Sherlock Holmes stories

A collection of stories about Sherlock Holmes, the well-known and well-loved detective, and his trusted friend and biographer Dr. Watson. "Reichenbach Feels" is set immediately after the unfortunate events of 'The Final Problem'. We follow the landlady of 221B, young Rebecca Hudson, on a quest to fill the void left behind by the untimely death of a lodger. In "A Case of Identity" a nightmare that has haunted our heroes becomes true: Professor Moriarty has finally outwitted them. And so we witness them planning a spectacular flight... "Both or None" depicts the best friendship in literature: Holmes and Watson have often saved each other's life- but what if nothing is safe, and no one is saved? Can one live without the other? Features two bonus stories: "Better Words Than These" describes what an impending war in the early 1900s might mean for a certain retired army surgeon, and his friend... In "The Fourth Wall" our heroes face the problem of an author vexed by his creations...


22. 10. Epilogue

Warden Sebastian entered the room, looking content of his success. Proudly he announced:

"Professor? They tried to escape. But- we have them."-


The calculating, diplomatic voice echoed from the walls.

"Inmates 707 and 601. Ward 221, Tract 'B'."

The professor's grey eyes didn't look up from the papers he was studying.

"Give me their names, I'm terrible with numbers."

"Warner, Juniper- and... uh, what was it? Ah- Sophie Howard.
Heavy mental disorder. Thinking they're Sherlock Holmes and his friend Watson."

When he spoke again, a tinge of pity could be discerned in the usually unemotional voice of Professor Julius Morton.

"Yes, I think I do remember them. Poor girls... Seems like this was their 'Reichenbach'."~
