In ´´A Mystery in Key West,´´ inspired by Conan Doyle´s ´´The Adventure of the Devil´s Foot,´´ Holmes´s doctor orders him to take a short holiday in Key West, and while there, Holmes is called on to look into a case in which three people involved in a Santería ritual died with no explanation. Sherlock Holmes IV is a direct descendant of the famed detective whose daring exploits were so vividly chronicled by Dr. John Watson and related to us by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This new Sherlock Holmes owns a small hotel (The Fleming House named after Ian Fleming of James Bond fame) on Miami´s South Beach, and this Sherlock is just as renowned in the present day as his illustrious ancestor was in his. ´´Imagine Sherlock Holmes—or rather, his great-great-great-grandson—living on South Beach and solving crimes and mysteries with the same aplomb as his famous forebear and you´ll get the picture of what´s going on here…´´ --Bartholomew Fox, author of ´´Deadlock´´ ´´Witty and clever, with a whole new cast of characters to support this new Holmes and this new Watson. They live in a small boutique hotel on Lincoln Road called Fleming House (named after Sherlock the IV´s love for James Bond author Ian Fleming). Holmes paces about in the penthouse while Watson (yes, he´s a direct descendant of Dr. Watson) manages Fleming House.

In ´´Enigma in the Redlands,´´ inspired by Conan Doyle´s ´´The Adventure of the Copper Beeches,´´ a nanny, hoping to work for a wealthy family, reaches out to Sherlock Holmes seeking his advice on whether she should take the new position when her prospective employer has demanded that she cut her hair as part of the job, arousing her suspicions because of the strange nature of the request and the isolated location of the estate where she would be employed.

In ´´Too Many Napoleons,´´ inspired by Conan Doyle´s ´´The Adventure of the Six Napoleons,´´ Miami Chief Inspector Lestrade calls on Holmes to help him figure out why a madman would go around Miami breaking into homes and businesses to destroy cheap busts of the French Emperor.
