Another Scandal in Bohemia

Another Scandal in Bohemia Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“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 Kings affections, finds much rotten in the state of Bohemia. As Irene and her dashing barrister husband, Godfrey Norton, and everyones 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 Douglass 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

Synopsis:

A novel of suspense featuring Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler

Originally titled Irenes Last Waltz

The ever-irresistible Irene Adler, her dashing barrister husband, Godfrey Norton, and the indomitable Miss Nell Huxleigh have arrived at last as their French cottage-having survived dastardly plots, Russian spies, pistol-wielding criminals, and the occasional cobra. The happy trio seeks nothing but rest and peace-but Irene has always chafed under idle conditions, and Paris, she says, "is pretty and urbane, but hardly a center of excitement." So when Charles Frederick Worth, the Parisian king of couture, invites Irene to become his "mannequin de ville," to wear the fabulous worth creations to stimulate his trade, Irene leaps at the chance.

But what was a joyous lark soon turns into a journey that can lead to disgrace, dishonor, and death when Irene, Nell, and Godfrey are drawn into a series of events that will compel Irene to the one place that she daren't go and the one man she must not confront-Prague and the King of Bohemia.
