In this entertaining sequel to Irene at Large , best-selling author Carole Nelson Douglas brings to life all the glamour and pomp of late 1800s European society. As usual, when diva and amateur sleuth Irene Adler tackles a difficult problem, she finds herself drawn like a beautiful moth into a deadly candle flame. Irene is relaxing with her dashing barrister husband at their home in Paris. But rest is fleeting when the Princess of Bohemia requests help with her loveless husband, the King—the ruthless man Irene once spurned. Accepting the challenge, Irene embarks on a perilous journey that takes her from Paris’ most renown house of fashion to the darkest depths of Prague and also to its lofty, glittering castle. Before Irene can find any answers, she must match wits not only with diabolical forces, but with the great Sherlock Holmes himself. Carole Nelson Douglas infuses this intriguing mystery with historical details, adventure, and wit. Virginia Leishman’s winning performance highlights Irene’s infectious joy of life.
