29 - Who Wrote The Mazarin Stone

17 minutes

"there can be no question as to the authorship" [SIGN] 


"The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone" took place in July 1903 and it shares a distinction with one other Sherlock Holmes story: like "The Adventure of the Lion's Mane," this is the only other story that is told by a third person.

We review some theories, summed up by Leslie Klinger, BSI ("The Abbey Grange") in his Daypark Press publication of a Baker Street Irregulars dinner memento in 2001. From Christopher Morley to O.F. Grazebrook, Gavin Brend, Martin Dakin and more, there are clever and preposterous suggestions as to whose pen was behind this story.

Not to mention the question of the layout of 221B Baker Street, the mysterious bay window, the condition of the wax bust, and more.

See which theory you side with in this episode of Trifles...
