Mr Holmes’ Advent Calendar – 24 Solve-it-Yourself Christmas Crimes – Volume 2 and the Sherlock Holmes Advent Calendar
Following the sell-out first Sherlock Holmes Advent Calendar, Volume 1 which we have back in stock, our friends at Homoculus has translated their 2nd calendar into English. 24 more cases to solve!
Even in the Advent season Mr. Holmes mustn’t take a break: Murderers, blackmailers and all kinds of odd incidents keep him on the go. And Watson is not much of a help, busying himself with baking all those Christmas cookies for his dog.
With the Advent season in full swing, there’s no time for Mr. Holmes to sit back and relax: an animal killer is on the loose at the zoo, a sinister Santa blows up a Christmas office party without a single stick of dynamite, and an unknown intruder causes sabotage at a local Deli by leaving bite marks on the decorations as well as the pastries.
A crime a day for the entire Advent season – and a convicted crook at the end of each successful investigation. Mr. Holmes’ Advent Calendar Vol. 2 comes packed with 24 new short crime stories for you to solve. Step into the shoes of the master detective, follow the clues, decipher codes, check alibis and unravel the mystery before the end of the day. Then turn the page to find the solution and a new case waiting for you. Great Christmas crime-cracking fun!
