En route to San
Francisco to settle her family’s estate, Mary Russell, in the company of
husband Sherlock Holmes, falls prey to troubling dreams—and even more troubling
behavior. In 1906, when Mary was six, the city was devastated by a catastrophic
earthquake. For years Mary has insisted she lived elsewhere at the time. But
Holmes knows better.
Soon it is clear
that whatever unpleasantness Mary wanted to forget hasn’t forgotten her. A
series of mysterious deaths leads Russell and Holmes from the winding streets
of Chinatown to the unspoken secrets of a parent’s marriage and the tragic
“accident” that Mary alone survived. What Russell discovers is that even a forgotten
past never dies—and it can kill again.
