Overview

It is 1917 and the Great War has been raging for three long years.

Mycroft Holmes grows suspicious of one of his agents in Constantinople. Naturally, he wants to send a man to investigate who knows the language, the people and has an exemplary war record, including fourteen months posing as a German officer in Berlin. But Sherlock Holmes proves to be, for once, stubbornly unwilling to fulfill his older brother’s request.

When Mycroft is shot and left for dead, Holmes is forced to Constantinople to uncover the man behind the deed. Unfortunately, before he was assaulted Mycroft failed to communicate which agent was the turncoat.

So begins Holmes’ reluctant return to the Near East. Not only does the adventure provoke a bagful of memories both bitter and sweet but the hunt for the agent who betrayed them unravels with breath-robbing surprises that even Holmes with all his skills could never have anticipated.
___

In true Sherlock Holmes fashion we are thrown into chasing down double agents across several continents and with enough red herrings to baffle anyone but Holmes himself. I am very impressed with her ability to write Sherlock Holmes close enough to the originals even Conan Doyle would have a hard time telling them apart. She is clever in her plot twists, true to Holmes in his logic and detailed thinking but she has also managed to give him a little bit of emotion that the originals lacked.
