Fans of Conan Doyle will be aware of Mycroft, Sherlock Holmes's older, cleverer brother who works in a shady capacity for the British government.

These stories are set after Sherlock has gone into retirement to raise bees and concentrate on the exploits of his brother. They're nicely written with some well-drawn characters, though I felt that the plots were rather shallow and didn't quite live up to the abilities of those involved.
