Mystery and Crime Bodkin, M MacDonnell: The Capture of Paul Beck (1911);v1; 26 Feb 2020

"The Rule of Thumb" detective Paul Beck was popular in the Victorian and later era, a contemporary of Sherlock Holmes; unlike Holmes, he did not achieve cult status, and gradually disappeared from the shelves. I have already posted the novel in which Paul Beck's son investigates a case, with a little help from his parents. This novel precedes that book. It has Paul Beck and Dora Myrle as private detectives on opposite sides of a fraud case. Later their interests converge.... ...

Superman to Play Sherlock Holmes

Poor Henry Cavill – he’s going to be known as Superman the rest of his life. And I’m not helping. They’re making an Enola Holmes movie, inspired by the six-volume young adult book series by Nancy Springer in which the pre-teen sister of Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes runs away and solves mysteries. I’m familiar with it because IDW has been putting out graphic novel adaptations; The Case of the Missing Marquess and The Case of the Left-Handed Lady have been [...]

Elizabeth Holmes is pushing to get the Theranos fraud case thrown out

Elizabeth Holmes' lawyers have asked a federal judge to throw out the US government's case against the Theranos founder. The US indicted Holmes in 2018 for 11 counts of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud through Theranos, which claimed to be able to conduct a medical blood test from just a single drop of blood.

To Senate Republicans, a Vote for Witnesses Is a Vote for Trouble
