“Some women are just born to have grand adventures. . . .This enchanting paragon comports herself beautifully.”--The New York Times
American diva Irene Adler, introduced in “A Scandal in Bohemia” as the only woman to outwit Sherlock Holmes, returns for a rematch when the murder of a humble bead-girl in Paris spirals into an international plot to reshape the map of Europe. Irene, drawn into the puzzling plight of Queen Clotilde, her successor in the King’s affections, finds much rotten in the state of Bohemia. As Irene and her dashing barrister husband, Godfrey Norton, and everyone’s favorite Victorian spinster, Nell Huxleigh, careen from Paris salons to Prague castles, Holmes is just behind with an agenda of his own. Before the adventure ends, thrones will tremble, the mystical clay monster of Prague called the Golem will walk, and Irene will confront her deadliest opponent.
“To capture the attention of the misogynistic and asexual Sherlock Holmes, a woman would need to be quite remarkable, and Douglas’s Irene is beyond remarkable . . . and a detective at least as skillful as the great Holmes.”--Mary Willis Walker, Edgar-winning author of All The Dead Lie Down
Carole Nelson Douglas is also the author of the Midnight Louie mystery series, the Taliswoman series, and numerous other mysteries, fantasies, and romances.
