The Adventures of Shirley Holmes
The Essential Case Files
The Adventures of Shirley Holmes : The Essential Case File was published in 1998 in Great Britain. It appears that the book had either a very small print run, or was not distributed widely because it has been very difficult for fans to purchase. In 1999 I managed to track a copy down. The site that I purchased from now lists the book as unavailable.

In an effort to bring the words from the book to as many people as possible, fans of Shirley Holmes from all over the world are translating the book from English and sharing what is a great resource on the show and the characters.

Additional full sized scans from the book are available at the Essential Case Scans section

You can download the original english text, as well as translated versions as Adobe PDF files. To read these files on your computer you will need Adobe's Acrobat Reader, available from the Adobe website.

Update : August 2010 : Updated and new German translations for all Case Files have been added, with many thanks to Ellen Hitzemann.
