I love the Laurie King series and this is just as interesting a take on how woman may have interacted with Sherlock Holmes and Watson. Great historical detail.
A good story. I am looking forward to reading others in the series.
Diva/Detective Irene Adler and her bridegroom, handsome barrister Godfrey Norton, are honeymooning in Paris when they become embroilded 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 saw in London-on another sailor's chest, while the body lay upon Bram Stoker's dining room table.
Originally titled: Good Morning, Irene. The heroine is the only woman to outwit the great Sherlock Holmes in the ACD novels. A wonderful mystery that takes place in the late 19th century.
Irene, who is still believed to be deceased, goes to Monaco, and when forced to consult Sherlock Holmes, disguises herself as Sarah Bernhardt.
