Product description

From the Back Cover

"Good Night, Mr. Holmes was an impressive enough performance to demand an encore. Introducing Irene Adler-- the only woman to dupe Sherlock Holmes-- as a detective in her own right, however, the earlier work was a hard act to follow. Happily, spirited opera star and amateur sleuth Irene is up to the task in this new yarn, a rollicking and complex story brimming with Victorian atmosphere and details."
--Publishers Weekly

Diva/detective Irene Adler and her bridegroom, handsome barrister Godfrey Norton, are honeymooning in Paris when they become embroiled in an investigation: a drowned sailor's body has been recovered from the Seine, and on his chest is a tattoo. A tattoo like one Irene once saw in London-- on another sailor's chest, while the corpse lay upon Bram Stoker's dining room table. This clue will lead Irene to the first beautiful blond American princess of Monaco, political and matrimonial treachery, and a sword duel as she and her new friend Sarah Bernhardt unravel the mystery-- with, of course, the help of Godfrey, Irene's faithful chronicler Miss Penelope Huxleigh, and Sherlock Holmes himself.

"Douglas dazzles us again with the continuing chronicles of the Great Detective's greatest rival.... Douglas's wonderful prose makes every word and phrase a sheer delight to read."
--Romantic Times (4 1/2 stars)
