This is the second of the rediscovered Sherlock Holmes adventures.

London, March 1895. The West End is full of strange happenings. Theater critic Jonathan McCarthy has been murdered. A young actress has also been killed—her throat slit. The Marquess of Queensberry is being sued for libel. And a police surgeon has disappeared along with two corpses.

Prominent figures in the theater district seem to be somehow involved in these various mysteries, including a penniless stage critic and writer named Bernard Shaw; Ellen Terry, the gifted and beautiful actress; a suspicious box office clerk named Bram Stoker; an aging matinee idol, Henry Irving; an unscrupulous publisher calling himself Frank Harris; and a controversial wit by the name of Oscar Wilde.

Scotland Yard is mystified by what appear to be unrelated cases. Sherlock Holmes, however, finds it all elementary: a maniac is at work. And his name is Jack.

    " Meyer's three Holmes novels were all over the place upon publication and I picked up cloth editions of each for a buck or less at used bookstores. Although I'm no great fan of the Sherlock Holmes stories, only having read them for fun as a kid, the books were entertaining imitations. A real Baker Street Irregular, however, would get more out of them. "

    " In the middle of what had promised to be a very dull day at 221B Baker St., Dr. Watson makes the startling discovery that Sherlock Holmes is friends with George Bernard Shaw. This unexpected dramatic connection brings the celebrated pair into contact with all the leading lights of the London theater scene as they investigate the murder of a detested critic. The frequent references to the canon and solid period detail make this an excellent pastiche, while the lighter characterization of Holmes (pranking Watson, having a second friend) make it a fun read.
