Publisher's Summary

Holmes framed for murder! 

Who is the mysterious Issa? 

The sounds of running and men crying out came closer. Suddenly Sigerson’s door burst open and an army of yellow- and maroon-clad police monks fell upon us, dragging us out into the street without so much as a word of explanation, through the mud and dung and then east across the Bridge of the Pleiades and on to the Jo-Kang, the Tibetan cathedral, the Holy of Holies of all Buddhist Asia, then along several corridors and down numerous staircases, and finally we found ourselves in the presence of the High Regent himself, the 14-year-old Dalai Lama! 

You are holding one of the rare stories to come to light involving "Sigerson", the name Sherlock Holmes went by during the years when the world thought he was dead - his Great Hiatus! This story also has the distinction of being the true first sequel to Horace Holly's She, which was published in 1887 under the byline of Holly's agent, H. Rider Haggard. The only heretofore known sequel, Ayesha: The Return of She, was published in 1904 and records events that occurred two decades after She. This new tale, then, is a record of the events that took place between the two previously published adventures.

Interesting Holmes story

Sherlock Holmes on the Roof of the World by Thomas Kent Miller is the first of the Holmes Behind the Veil series. This story was an interesting adventure of the Norwegian explorer Sigerson in Tibet during Holmes’s Great Hiatus. I’m not versed on Horace Holly's She by H. Rider Haggard so I didn’t fully appreciate some of the references. The narration by Michael Langan was great.

Mystery was good, Rest not

The mystery was good, but the philosophy at the end of the story ruined it for me (will not say more to avoid spoilers).
