'The stories are atmospheric, fast-moving, ingenious and very enjoyable.' - Roger Johnson, The District Messenger
A financial crisis, and a bank on the brink of ruin. The City of London, the great financial hub of the British Empire, stands on the edge of collapse. And yet, in the background, an attack on the City's lines of communication are making the matter worse.
Are dark forces at work?
Mycroft Holmes, the brother of the country's most famous detective, believes that they might be.
And in this thrilling novella, Mycroft has just a few hours to prove his theory correct - and to save the financial system from collapse.
Mycroft Holmes and The Bankers’ Conclave is the fourth book in David Dickinson’s brilliant series of novellas that started with 'Mycroft Holmes and the Adventure of the Silver Birches'.
