Dick Gillman is a Yorkshireman in his 60's. He retired from teaching Science in 2005 and moved to Brittany, France in 2008 with his wife Alex, Truffle, the Black Labrador and Poppy, the cat. He still has strong links with the UK where he visits his two grown up children and his grandchildren.
During his retirement he has written over twenty Sherlock Holmes short stories, the majority of which are published here. His latest short story, Sherlock Holmes and The Fallen Photographer was published at Smashwords June 2017. Successfully publishing both e-books and paperbacks, he has also been selected to contribute a story to the superb, World Record beating and ongoing Sherlock Holmes anthology. Published by MX in October, 2015, his story, Sherlock Holmes and The Man on Westminster Bridge had the privilege of being chosen as the anchor story in Volume 2 of the anthology.
Watch out for further Sherlock Holmes short stories throughout 2017 and treat yourself to his very latest seven story collection, 'Julia Moriarty - in memorium' which contains all the stories in which Holmes crosses swords with the beautiful, but deadly, Julia Moriarty. This is available an e-book and can be found as a paperback at all major online bookstores.

An excellent light story! Doesn't take very long to read while still long enough to live our the great plot. Well written staying with the original Holmesian structure and spirit. I'd recommend giving it a read.

Fantastic story! Very enjoyable. The plot is great - and the climax is quite neat! I'd recommend this one - as well as the others in the "Fireside Collection" series!
