Summary

Will Dylan is an electoral favourite – intelligent, sharp and good-looking, he is the government’s new golden boy. Jonas Killey is a small-time lawyer – determined, uncompromising and obsessed, he is hounding Dylan in the hope of bringing him into disrepute. Believing he has information that can connect Dylan with an illegal procedure during a trade union merger, he starts to spread the word, provoking a top-level fluttering. At the crucial time of a general election, no government can afford bad press. Jonas suddenly finds himself pursued by those who want to keep him quiet, but he is determined that the truth will be heard.

    Four months ago, the branch of the federal government that enforces the Serial Killer & Mass Murder laws was attacked.  It was organized and used every ruthless killer that could be scrounged up to carry it out.  Aislinn Cain and the SCTU lead the charge to take back their neighborhood and the Fortress.   
    They succeeded, but at high costs to law enforcements and civilians.  It left Kansas City and the government reeling.  Backlash was immediate and harsh.  The Violent Crimes Unit of the FBI was disbanded, leaving Malachi Blake and Caleb Green without jobs.  Aislinn Cain was suspended for three months.  However, the worst part was that most of the killers involved escaped. 
    When piles of bones begin turning up in public parks around Kansas City, nobody wants to deal with such a blatant statement that a serial killer is stalking their backyards.  He’s organized and arranges to the bones to shock anyone that might find them.  He wants everyone to read the stories that the bones tell about his victims. 
    With all the turmoil, Aislinn Cain’s suspension is lifted so that she can lead her own unit to track this home town serial killer.  Most of her team are in training.  They are the beginnings of a second SCT unit.  They must move quickly though because this killer has been at it for years and has suddenly accelerated his killing pace. 
    Just as Aislinn thinks things can’t get any worse, a mystery man shows up.  He brings violence and death with him.  Her unwanted stalker is willing to kill for her, but she doesn’t know who he is or why.  Until she gets a single clue and realizes the past of one SCTU member could force them to stop investigating the bone cleaner and start a frantic search for a far darker serial killer.

    It is the year 1890. Sherlock Holmes’ fame has spread even to the colonies as he and his stalwart chronicler, Dr John Watson, are swept up in an array of mysteries ‘down under’. They find themselves summoned from location to location, traversing all corners of the strange island continent of Australia, challenged with mysteries and a geographical and cultural landscape with which they are unfamiliar.
     
    From eerie shadows on cave walls, to an actor’s most grisly curtain call, an abduction by a demon, and an inexplicable drowning, to the odd affair of the reputed biggest man in Australia, a purloined bunyip, and to sinister, bearded bushrangers, the tales within this collection provide fresh perspective to the Holmes phenomena and will intrigue, delight and entertain readers.
     
    The stories are written in Conan Doyle’s classic Watson persona by a range of Sherlockians, historians, established writers and some exciting emerging talents: Kerry Greenwood and Lindy Cameron, Meg Keneally, Kaaron Warren, Lucy Sussex, L.J.M. Owen, T.S.P. Sweeney, J. Scherpenhuizen, Will Schaefer, Robert Veld, Doug Elliott, Philip Cornell, Raymond Gates, Jason Franks, Narrelle M. Harris, Steve Cameron, and editor Christopher Sequeira himself, and with an introduction by Baker Street Irregular Bill Barnes, and illustrations by Philip Cornell, J. Scherpenhuizen and Marcelo Baez.
