Abstract:

"Not even death can keep a good pirate down--but the world's greatest detective might be able to give him a run for his money The houseboat on the river Styx is the afterlife's hippest meeting spot, and it attracts some of history's greatest luminaries: William Shakespeare, Confucius, Napoleon Bonaparte, George Washington, and Socrates have all spent time together there. But such illustrious men also attract less savory characters from the past. One of these scoundrels, the great pirate Captain Kidd, seizes an opportunity to pick up some cigars from London with the houseboat. Now the vessel is missing, and there's only one dead man skilled enough in deduction to track down Kidd and the boat--the world's foremost detective, Sherlock Holmes. Meanwhile, Captain Kidd has his hands full, as the stolen boat contains an unexpected set of stowaways who are making his quick jaunt far more difficult than he bargained for. The Pursuit of the House-Boat is a raucous romp through the underworld. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices."
