FROM BACK COVER:
"Sherlock Holmes fans know about the "missing years" -- the time when Holmes traveled in Asia after his epic battle with Professor Moriarty. Now, thanks to recently discovered notebooks, award-winning author Dale Furutani recounts some of the Great Detective's most challenging cases.
Holmes is secretly brought to Japan disguised as an explorer named Sigerson. His host in Japan, Doctor Junichi Watanabe, helps Holmes unravel a series of perplexing cases.
How can the sound of an obscure Japanese garden instrument help Holmes solve a case of madness and the voice of the Devil? Why would a thief risk capture to steal countless jars of pickles? Why would ghostly samurai appear to guard a waterfall? These and other puzzling mysteries challenge Holmes and Doctor Watanabe in The Curious Adventures of Sherlock Holmes in Japan."
