Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The year is 1896, and St. Pauls magnificent Winter Carnival is under way when Holmes and Watson are summoned by the citys most powerful man, railroad magnate James J. Hill. A wealthy young man disappears on the eve of his wedding—and his fiancée suspiciously discards her wedding dress. After a grisly discovery in the carnivals Ice Palace leads to a flurry of clues, Holmes is on the case. His pursuit of the murderer takes him through the highest echelons of St. Paul society and into cahoots with Shadwell Rafferty, a gregarious saloonkeeper and part-time private investigator. Soon Holmes, Watson, and Rafferty are embroiled in a perilous adventure that takes them from one frozen corner of the city to another and out onto the treacherous ice of the Mississippi River as they trail a cruel and ruthless killer.

Synopsis:

When one of St. Pauls wealthiest scions loses his head—literally—its up to Holmes and Watson to track a cold-blooded killer.
