This book is appropriately names the Lost Files. Truly if you do not think that is appropriate then just try finding a copy of this book. I was luckily enough to get a second hand copy after a lot of searching, it was worth the effort.

A curate's egg of a piece of work.

This is the first in a series of works by Paul Gilbert that investigate the cases found in Dr Watson's notes that Conan Doyle didn't write up.

Okay. I only read the first mystery, but it was a poor shade compared to the real deal. So I gave up. Poorly written, not enticing or exciting.
