Now you see them, now you don’t … Where is the missing mother? And the omnibus with nine occupants? In Strange Events, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson return in two bizarre and chilling tales by the ingenious Lyn McConchie.

How can an omnibus with eight passengers and a driver simply vanish into thin air? The newspapers are full of speculation, and the police are clueless. Maurice Jepson’s wife Thelma was on the missing omnibus, and in desperation, he turns to Holmes and Watson. Their investigations lead them from the omnibus’s last route into unsavory gambling hells, where all is not as it seems. And when the body of one of the passengers is discovered in a vacant plot of land, the race is on to save the others!

Mrs. Martha Bewden left for a holiday, placing her legal affairs in the hands of her elder daughter, Heather. But two months have passed without a letter or any word, and her younger daughter Dorothy is growing concerned. Where is her mother? And why hasn’t she written or returned home? Holmes and Watson’s search for the missing woman carries them to the quaint villages of Cornwall and the bleak wilds of Dartmoor, where danger and horror await!

Note: This digital edition includes the PDF, EPUB and MOBI (Kindle) versions of the book.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
