Watson takes up his pen one last time to describe in a private memoir the true tale of Holmes' adventures during his three-year absence from Baker Street, and provides a fictional explanation for many of the mysteries and inaccuracies found with the Sherlock Holmes collection of stories and novels. The answers come in the shape of a woman--Elizabeth Sigerson. Elizabeth is independent, practical, a crack shot with a pistol, and definitely not a woman of her time. Elizabeth can more than hold her own against Holmes' abilities, but she has a secret that Holmes is compelled to solve.

Chronicles of the Lost Years brilliantly replicates Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's narrative style, using Watson as the first-person narrator. It takes a more humane perspective of Sherlock Holmes, a perspective that has become popular since Jeremy Brett's brilliant portrayal of the great detective in the Thames Television series. This book won the Sherlock Holmes Society's Best Pastiche Award in 1995.
