This is the second of the rediscovered Sherlock Holmes adventures.
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.
