kareem-abdul-jabbar-mycroft-holmes-book-signed-autographed-limited-edition-imagesTitan Books has announced that a new tale centering on legendary detective Sherlock Holmes’s mysterious older brother, Mycroft Holmes, is about to be told — by none other than NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, along with his co-writer Anna Waterhouse.

To celebrate this literary milestone, Titan Books is publishing an amazing signed limited edition. The edition comes with an exclusive jacket, is signed by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and is limited to 500 copies worldwide.

Mycroft Holmes sees Sherlock’s mysterious brother fresh out of college and already proving himself as a shrewd player in the British government. His best friend is Cyrus Douglas, a man of African descent, who was born and raised in Trinidad, where Mycroft’s new fiancée, Georgiana, was also raised.

Cyrus hears troubling news from home: mysterious disappearances; strange, backwards-facing footprints on the sand; spirits enticing children to their deaths. Soon the action moves to Trinidad, into a web of dark secrets that grow more insidious and baffling with each step they take.
