    In 1915, Sherlock Holmes is retired and quietly engaged in the study of honeybees when a young woman literally stumbles into him on the Sussex Downs. Fifteen years old, gawky, egotistical, and recently orphaned, the young Mary Russell displays an intellect to impress even Sherlock Holmes - and match him wit for wit. Under his reluctant tutelage, this very modern 20th-century woman proves a deft protégée and a fitting partner for the Victorian detective.

    Mary Russell, assistant and protegee of the great Sherlock Holmes finds herself and her partner once more mired in mystery. When Mary is given a scrap of papyrus by an old archeologist friend, she has no inkling of what it contains. Written in Greek, it could be a letter from a previously unknown apostle - who just happens to be female. However, the situation moves from being curiously exciting to chillingly perilous, as the archeologist is murdered and Mary and Sherlock's home is ransacked. With the possible implications of the fragment, the list of suspects seems endless.
