Hello

On my mind

Lots of stuff - history, biography, books, music, film, politics...

Why I'm excited to talk with readers

All art, (which includes writing), is about communication. It's nice to learn, what, if anything, is getting through...

Regards,

Nicholas Meyer

Sherlock Holmes and the Telegram from Hell

Coming August 27th 2024!

June, 1916. With a world war raging on the continent, exhausted John H. Watson, M.D. is operating on the wounded full-time when his labors are interrupted by a knock on his door, revealing …

Sherlock Holmes, with a black eye, a missing tooth and a cracked rib. The story he has to tell will set in motion a series of world-changing events in the most consequential case of the detective’s career. Amid rebellion in Ireland and revolution in Russia, Germany has a secret plan to win the war and Sir William Melville of the British Secret Service dispatches the two aging friends to learn what the scheme is before it can be put into effect. In pursuit of a mysterious coded telegram sent from Berlin to an unknown recipient in Mexico, Holmes and Watson must cross the Atlantic, dodge German U-boats and assassination attempts, and evade the intrigues of young J. Edgar Hoover, while enlisting the help of a beautiful, eccentric Washington socialite as they seek to foil the schemes of Holmes’s nemesis, the escaped German spymaster Von Bork.

"There is no living novelist-perhaps no novelist since Doyle-to write Sherlock Holmes with such style, wit, and cleverness."

J. J. Abrams

The Return of the Pharaoh

From the Reminiscences of John H. Watson, M.D.

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.

“I’ve loved Nicholas Meyer’s Holmes novels since boyhood and his latest takes me right back there. A dazzling blend of perfect period detail, Egyptology, murder, spies, treasure, mummies, spot on Holmesian banter and one of the best action sequences I’ve read in a long time makes for another incredibly satisfying read.”

— Paul Giamatti, actor

The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols

Adapted from the Journals of John H. Watson, M.D.

January 1905: Holmes and Watson are summoned by Holmes' brother Mycroft to undertake a clandestine investigation. An agent of the British Secret Service has been found floating in the Thames, carrying a manuscript smuggled into England at the cost of her life. The pages purport to be the minutes of a meeting of a secret group intent on nothing less than taking over the world.

Based on real events, the adventure takes the famed duo―in the company of a bewitching woman―aboard the Orient Express from Paris into the heart of Tsarist Russia, where Holmes and Watson attempt to trace the origins of this explosive document. On their heels are desperate men of unknown allegiance, determined to prevent them from achieving their task. And what they uncover is a conspiracy so vast as to challenge Sherlock Holmes as never before.

"Reading Nicholas Meyer’s very first Sherlock Holmes adventure, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, made me decide to become a writer. Reading his latest simply made me a delighted and satisfied reader.”

— Michael Chabon
