An enigmatic jewelry case, holding human remains, arrives at the cottage of Sherlock Holmes, enticing him from his retirement refuge in the Sussex Downs. Holmes sets out on the trail of the murderer taunting him, joining forces with one of his former Baker Street irregulars, Tessa Wiggins. The two find themselves battling forces arising from a time before England was a country—when the Celts were fighting for survival.
The Celtic Phoenix is the journey of three women who rise from the ashes of their past like fearsome phoenixes and shake the rational foundations upon Sherlock Holmes built his life and career.
A Sherlock Holmes Adventure Featuring Tessa Wiggins the Irregular Detective
The Celtic Phoenix
Kim Krisco has captured Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's style in his novels about the enigmatic Sherlock Holmes. Rarely does a figure continue to live past the original writer’s time, but Krisco has managed a way to keep Holmes alive — much to the delight of this fan. In The Celtic Phoenix, Krisco treats us to an in-depth look into the lives of the ancient Celts and their intriguing ways, while at the same time entwining Holmes and Watson into the thick of things. An excellent read — an excellent author. — Catherine J. Moser, Chronicle News, Trinidad, Colorado
Some of Holmes’s most bizarre cases involved the irregulars: a hideous execution of a man who had been strapped to the barrel of cannon, a fiend who hoped he could live forever on the blood of others, and the largest jewel robbery in Britain.
This novel fills a growing niche some call “mystorical fiction” because highly accurate historical settings and characters provide the backdrop for Irregular Lives. This tale begins in post WWI London, when Holmes is fully into retirement.

Irregular Lives: The Untold Story of Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars
I've always had a fondness for the Baker Street Irregulars, so it was with a mixture of anticipation and trepidation that I approached this book. Much like with the recent Lincoln in the Bardo, I believe authors should approach the young people associated with major figures, whether literary or historical, carefully. My fears were unfounded here. Out of the hundreds of pastiche I've read, this is one of the sweetest and saddest Holmes stories I've encountered. Highly recommended. — David Wade
These five, totally new, Sherlock Holmes adventures take place after Holmes and Watson believe they have gone into retirement. Of course, you and I know such a notion is irrealizable for either of them. Indeed, some of their most remarkable and dangerous adventures await them.
While each story is a separate adventure, the five tales in this collection follow one another chronologically. In the end, this wonderful new chronicle sheds new light on greatest mystery of all, Sherlock Holmes himself.
A completely new five-story Holmes collection
Sherlock Holmes - The Golden Years
This collection of five novellas is one of the finest sets of Sherlockian fiction I have seen. The author has a good grasp of Nineteenth Century British politics and thought, and each of the tales looks at seldom seen sides of that world. These five tales are rich in details. Many historical characters are portrayed, some with no more explanation than a name.
