The Case of the Dead Batsman
By Peter Viney Series edited by Peter Viney
The Case of the Dead Batsman, was selected as a finalist for the Extensive Reading Foundation’s Language Learner Literature Award!
‘I have been investigating cricket matches, Watson,’ said Holmes. ‘In the last twenty-five years, three people have been killed during cricket matches. Two of them were Pendryth and Dodds during the last two weeks, in the same village cricket team.’
Two tragic accidents in two weeks. Two players from the same village team are dead, both struck on the forehead by the cricket ball. Is this a case for the famous detective Sherlock Holmes?
This original story is based on the Sherlock Holmes mysteries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
