THE FINAL WORD in Sherlockian scholarship, this book takes you on a tour of the resting places of over 300 creations that were brought to life by that master storyteller, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Each Canonical cemetery represents a different adventure of the master detective, Sherlock Holmes.

The tombstones found in the graveyards offer epitaphs that reveal the honoree's ultimate demise or particular plot in life. It is a daunting task to consolidate a life to a few phrases, yet the effort has been undertaken and the fruits of this research have been recorded within the covers of this tomb ... err ... tome. No stone has been left unturned to illustrate the sentiments behind the epitaphs contained in this volume.  Whether funny, punny, poignant, or just plain awkward, the engravings represent THE FINAL WORD concerning the plights of hundreds of Canonical characters taken from all sixty stories. Notable Sherlockians are honored as their likenesses adorn the monuments as  effigies, and members of the Baker Street Irregulars and Adventuresses Of Sherlock Holmes are listed after the tales from which

 their Investitures were taken. 

Beware ... deathly prose doth lie within !
