In Nicholas Meyer's The Return of the Pharaoh, Sherlock Holmes returns in an adventure that takes him to Egypt in search of a missing nobleman, a previously undiscovered pharaoh's tomb, and a conspiracy that threatens his very life. With his international bestseller, The Seven Per Cent Solution, Nicholas Meyer brought to light a previously unpublished case of Sherlock Holmes that reinvigorated the world's interest in the first consulting detective. Now, many years later, Meyer is given exclusive access to Dr. Watson's unpublished journal, wherein he details a previously unknown case. In 1910, Dr. John Watson travels to Egypt with his wife Juliet. Her tuberculosis has returned and her doctor recommends a stay at a sanitarium in a dry climate. But while his wife undergoes treatment, Dr. Watson bumps into an old friend--Sherlock Holmes, in disguise and on a case. An English Duke with a penchant for egyptology has disappeared, leading to enquiries from his wife and the Home Office. Holmes has discovered that the missing duke has indeed vanished from his lavish rooms in Cairo and that he was on the trail of a previous undiscovered and unopened tomb. And that he's only the latest Egyptologist to die or disappear under odd circumstances. With the help of Howard Carter, Holmes and Watson are on the trail of something much bigger, more important, and more sinister than an errant lord. A Macmillan Audio production from Minotaur Books

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Meyer has brought Holmes and Watson vividly back to life, this time pitting them against an array of dangerous characters in a colorful, well-researched Egypt during the Edwardian era. A great read!” Dennis Palumbo, author of the Daniel Rinaldi mysteries
“A rousing adventure.” Kirkus Reviews
“There is no living novelist—perhaps no novelist since Doyle—to write Sherlock Holmes with such style, wit, and cleverness. The Return of the Pharaoh is another proud feather in Nicholas Meyer’s deerstalker.” J. J. Abrams, producer and director of Star Wars, Star Trek, and Mission Impossible
