by John Hall
Print Length: 135 pages
Publisher: Endeavour Press (May 18, 2015)

In this highly thrilling mystery, Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr Watson embark on a mission to find a stolen photograph in order to save the King of Bohemia. A year prior to this, Holmes and Watson had been on a similar adventure, trying to retain this same photograph from the grasp of the clever Mrs Norton (then Miss Adler). However, with that mystery resolved to the satisfaction of the King, the original photo has now been stolen from Mrs Norton by Karl, his illegitimate brother, and his cousin, Gottfried who would inherit the throne should anything happen to the current King.

The photograph shows evidence of a scandal that will threaten the idea of a peace treaty to be signed by Scandinavian royalty. Unless the Bohemian King abdicates from the throne, the photos and letters will be shown publicly, the Scandinavian king would not then sign the treaty and as a result there would be a terrible civil war.

‘Jesus Himself’

Page Numbers Source ISBN: 1604447273

Andrew Murray (May 9, 1828 – January 18, 1917) was a South African writer, teacher, and Christian pastor. Murray considered missions to be “the chief end of the church.” (wikipedia.org) Excerpt from the book: The words, from which I want to present a simple message, will be found in the Gospel according to St. Luke, the 24th chapter and the 31st verse: “And their eyes were opened, and they knew Him.” Some time since, I preached a sermon with the words “Jesus Himself” as the text; and as I went home I said to those who were walking with me: “How possible it is to have Jesus Himself with us and never to know it, and how possible to preach of, and to listen to, all the truth about Jesus Himself and yet not to know Him.” I cannot say what a deep impression was made upon me as I thought over it.
