This book is the publisher's favourite Sherlock Holmes title from the stimulating pen of Val Andrews.
It is one of those stories that is pure adventure and written in such a way that it holds the reader in its grip to the very last page.
The story involves Holmes and Watson in travel through Africa and across punishing desert where every kind of obstacle is presented to make the journey hazardous and tiring.
They reach a steep, mist-shrouded cliff and here Holmes and Watson make a descent into what appears to be the end of the world. When they reach their destination some terrible and awful experiences await them including incarceration in a sealed tomb as they await their doom.
Val's greatest title for sure!
