From a manuscript believed to be the work of John H. Watson, MD:
The summer of 1897 brings visitors flocking to London for Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. With them comes a Russian nobleman, as well as an English lady from Canada. This lady calls on Holmes and Watson for their assistance in dealing with strangers who are following her. The mystery deepens when Holmes recognizes one of them as the head of Russian Intelligence in London.

"Second only to Denis O. Smith among current writers at evoking the Watsonian voice, Roberts needs only a more complex plot to truly shine."' - Publishers Weekly
"The charismatically eccentric Holmes takes center stage, of course, but he's admirably supported by clever writing, an unusual plot, historical authenticity, and well-drawn characters. One of the most traditional--and traditionally satisfying--of the many series that update the Holmes canon.' - Booklist
