Overview

�THE Woman is back! The dazzling Irene Adler returns to match wits with Sherlock Holmes himself in Douglas's newest tour de force... A joy to read and savor, this latest Adler triumph will be greeted with one well-deserved huzza after another��RT Book Reviews

(This fourth novel in the series, was previously published without the Readers Guide as Irene�s Last Waltz)

American diva Irene Adler, introduced in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle�s story, �A Scandal in Bohemia� as the only woman to outwit Sherlock Holmes, returns for a rematch, not only with Holmes, but with Bohemia. The murder of a humble worker at a Paris couturier house spirals into an international plot to reshape the map of 19th-century Europe. Irene, drawn into the 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 and graveyards, 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.

Editorial Reviews

Mystery Scene - Michael Collings
�the private and public escapades of Irene Adler Norton [are] as erratic and unexpected and brilliant as the character herself.�
Publishers Weekly - unsigned review
“Gothic atmosphere and political intrigue abound as scenes shift from castle to graveyard. Like a master seamstress herself, Douglas threads these elements—and the flashing exchanges between Holmes and Irene Adler Norton... into a credible and finely crafted whole.”
Edgar-winning author - Mary Willis Walker
�To capture the attention of the misogynistic and asexual Mr. Holmes, a woman would need to be quite remarkable, and Douglas' Irene is beyond remarkable... and a detective at least as skillful as the great Holmes.�
Dallas Morning News - Laurie Trimble
“This Irene Adler adventure/mystery cleverly contrasts a brash, beautiful and brilliant heroine with her quiet, proper, conservative assistant to create a cross-section of Victorian life... [the] mystery romps along at a pace as quick as Irene's sometimes caustic wit... Lovers of mystery and adventure alike will enjoy this delightful spin across Eastern Europe, and newcomers to the Irene Adler camp will scurry to bookstores seeking the earlier three Adler adventures.”—
Worcester MA News - Charles Burns
“Irene is unconventional, irreverent, at least a century before her time...witty, competent, competitive, adventurous, and like Holmes himself fascinated with the curious and the criminal.”
