Guy Adams - Dr. ​Moreau serege
Több ​helyütt is szétmarcangolt holttestekre bukkannak London utcáin és a Temzében. A szörnyű sebekre úgy tűnik nincs más magyarázat: a rémtetteket csakis valamilyen rettenetes fenevadak követhették el. Sherlock Holmest ezúttal bátyja, Mycroft keresi fel, akinek meggyőződése, hogy az áldozatokat névjegynek szánták, és az elkövető nem lehet más, mint Dr. Moreau, az élveboncolás ismert képviselője. A hirhedt tudós sokáig a brit kormánynak dolgozott, de miután kísérletei egyre hevesebb ellenállást váltottak ki, végül leállították munkáját. Ám Mycroft szerint Moreau nem szüntette be a kutatásait, ezért megbízza testvérét, hogy a doktor nyomára bukkanjon, mielőtt az általa teremtett szörnyek végleg elszabadulnak. _Sherlock Holmes alakját Arthur Conan Doyle teremtette meg 1887-ben. A híres detektív olyan népszerűségre tett szert, hogy a szerző halála után számos író folytatta a kalandok sorát.

Or are there more sinister forces at work?

Guy Adams - Joyride
‘So, ​you can just leap into other people’s bodies? Take them over? And while you’re in control, you can do whatever you want? Brilliant.’ Poppy is a quiet girl, right up until she steals a car and drives it through a shop window. Max is a nice guy, but then he kills his whole family. Just for fun. Amar always seems so happy, so why is he trying to jump to his death from the school roof? Some of the students of Coal Hill School are not themselves. Some of them are dying. Ram has just woken up in a body he doesn't recognise, and if he doesn't figure out why he may well be next.

Guy Adams - The ​Rules of Modern Policing
'Don't ​move! You're surrounded by armed bastards!' Viewers of "Life on Mars" could be forgiven for thinking that the police force of the 1970s lived by the maxim 'The rules are: there are no rules', yet it turns out that this was not the case. A fascinating historical document has now emerged which shows that there were indeed rules and in 1973 they were recorded on paper by none other than DCI Gene Hunt himself. Divided into ten sections, "The Rules of Modern Policing - 1973 Edition" covers everything from interrogating suspects and undercover operations to driving and dress code. Several of the rules are illustrated with diagrams, and photographs of DCI Hunt himself illustrating the more physical parts of the job: how to hit suspects so you don't leave a mark; how to signal the importance of your arrival by crashing into inanimate objects (cardboard boxes are a perfect example here - lots of noise; no damage to your motor); how to roll over the bonnet of your cortina without making a dick of yourself. Completing the book is an invaluable glossary of police terms, covering everything from blag to lag, and nonce to ponce. An essential reference work for fans of "Life of Mars", "The Rules of Modern Policing" offers a unique insight to seventies' law enforcement that will make you laugh until you cry like the wet little turd you are.

Jenny T. Colgan - Jacqueline Rayner - Steve Lyons - Guy Adams - Andrew Lane - Doctor ​Who: The Legends of River Song
‘Hello, ​sweetie!’ Melody Pond, Melody Malone, River Song…She has had many names. Whoever she really is, this archaeologist and time traveller has had more adventures (and got into more trouble) than most people in the universe. And she’s written a lot of it down.

These are just a few of River Song’s exploits, extracted from her journals. Sometimes, she is with the Doctor. Sometimes she’s on her own. But wherever and whenever she may be, she is never far from danger and excitement. This is just a tiny portion of her impossible life. But it will reveal more than you’ve ever known about the legend that is River Song.

Guy Adams - The ​House That Jack Built
Jackson ​Leaves - an Edwardian house in Penylan.Built 1906, semi-detached, three storeys, spacious, beautifully presented. Left in good condition to Rob and Julia by Rob's late aunt. It's an ordinary sort of a house. Except for the way the rooms don't stay in the same places. And the strange man that turns up in the airing cupboard. And the apparitions. And the temporal surges that attract the attentions of Torchwood. And the fact that the first owner of Jackson Leaves in 1906 was a Captain Jack Harkness...

Guy Adams - The ​Sherlock Files
Fans ​of Sherlock Holmes will already be familiar with The Great Game -- in which all characters and events in the novels are assumed real and discussed accordingly. BBC hit Sherlock has brought Conan Doyle's legendary detective to a whole new audience and Sherlock: The Casebook is The Great Game for the next generation. This is no ordinary guide. Each case is brought to life on the page and re-examined through Dr Watson's blog, Inspector Lestrade's police reports, newspaper articles about the crimes, Sherlock's detective notes and any other surviving clues from the cases. Interspersed amongst the evidence are exclusive interviews with the stars of the show, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Rupert Graves, writers and co-creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat and the production team on everything from writing the scripts and bringing the characters to life on screen to set design and production. This is a multi-dimensional companion to Sherlock and a glorious tribute to the world-famous detective.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - Guy Adams - Sherlock ​- The Casebook
This ​book is my humble attempt to shine a light on the work of the best and wisest I have ever known. He has, I think it is safe to say, elevated the science of detection into an art form. Having been at his side during some of his most remarkable cases, it has fallen to me to bring his achievements to the attention of the wider public. He is, quite simply, the Mozart of criminal investigation. I would say more, but I am flattered and delighted to say that Sherlock Holmes himself has agreed to write a piece for the cover. John Watson Don’t buy this book. The author has transformed what should have been a series of lectures into a gross and tasteless entertainment. The science of deduction is a branch of human achievement requiring serious analysis and yet here I find it lavishly illustrated, disfigured with humour and infested with gossip. Apparently, this kind of sensationalism is required to engage the interest of the reading public, but it is rather like working an office romance into a paper on quantum physics. Only an idiot would be impressed. Help yourself. Sherlock Holmes
