Legendary detective Sherlock Holmes makes an uncharacteristic mistake when a young woman begs him to help find her missing fiancé. Sherlock’s daughter, Lucy James, has a missing-persons case of her own, with a strange and aristocratic English lady as her client. But Lucy must also protect Becky, her ten-year-old sister-in-law, from a vicious criminal.
The newest adventure in this popular mystery series takes us from the depths of the Old Bailey courthouse and the seacoast lairs of smugglers to the splendor of a grand British country estate and the posh financial headquarters of Lloyd’s of London. For Watson, Sherlock and Lucy, survival will require valor, sacrifice, and even acts that go far outside Victorian law.
