After his epic struggle with Professor Moriarty on the Reichenbach Cliff on May 4, 1891, Sherlock Holmes journed incognito to Tibet for two years before resuming his adventures with Dr. Watson at 221B Baker Street. 221A Baker Street examines the great detective's interest in Tantric Buddhism, his contribution to the colonial pride and prejudices of the Victorian Era, the fate of his archenemy and demian and his encounters with a Tibetan masterspy who played a commanding, if invisible, role in a score of cases, including The Speckled Band, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and A scandel in Bohemia. Dr. Watson's long lost short story The Case of the Two Coptic Patriarchs is presented for the first time as well as The Adamantine Sherlock Holmes, a treasury of quotations from the collected works reflecting a Buddhist philosophy.
