After a stunning debut in Good Night, Mr. Holmes, Irene Adler returns to life and action in France.

Diva/detective Irene Adler and her bridegroom, handsome barrister Godfrey Norton, are honeymooning in Paris when they become embroiled in an investigation: a drowned sailor’s body has been recovered from the Seine, and on his chest is a tattoo. It is a tattoo like one Irene once saw in London—on another sailor’s chest, while the corpse lay upon Bram Stoker’s dining room table. This clue will lead Irene to the first beautiful blonde American princess of Monaco, political and matrimonial treachery, and a sword duel as she and her new friend Sarah Bernhardt unravel the mystery—with, of course, the help of Godfrey, Irene’s faithful chronicler Miss Penelope Huxleigh, and Sherlock Holmes himself.

    " I really wanted to like this series, but the narrator is just too annoying to read any more right now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/27/2013

    " This was another fun female version of a Sherlock Holmes mystery, with disguises and plotting and amusing characters. For some reason, though, I didn't get as involved with the story as I did with the first one of the series. Oh well, it's still a good summer read. "

About the Narrators

Patrick Tull (1941–2006), born in the United Kingdom, was a multitalented actor of the stage, screen, and television, as well as an award-winning audiobook narrator. He acted in numerous American television shows from 1962 to 1996, including Crossroads, and he had roles in six Broadway plays between 1967 and 1992, including Amadeus. His film credits from 1969 to 1996 included roles as Cecil in Parting Glances and Jerry the bartender in Sleepers. He served as narrator for the television series Sea Tales. He narrated nearly forty audiobooks, and his readings of The Canterbury Tales, The Letter of Marque, Monk’s Hood, The Vicar of Wakefield, and How Green Was My Valley each earned him an AudioFile Earphones Award. His narration of Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey/Maturin novels was praised by novelist Stephen King as among his ten favorite audiobooks of 2006.

Virginia Leishman successfully revived The Railway Children and other titles by E. Nesbit. She parses phrases carefully for nuance, and flavors dialogue with personality and spontaneity, as exemplified in her rendition of A. S. Byatt’s Possession.
