Sherlock in Love: The Holmes-Adler Mysteries
For Sherlock Holmes, Irene Adler was always the woman, but at the end of "A Scandal in Bohemia" Dr. Watson had pronounced her dead and gone. However, reports of her death were greatly exaggerated. Holmes and Miss Adler had fallen in love at first sight and she promptly moved in with Holmes and Watson at 221B Baker Street. In an effort to protect the delicate sensibilities of the British reading public, Watson explained her presence by referring to her as Mrs. Hudson, the housekeeper, even as Holmes and Adler combined forces to become a formidable detecting duo. In these three cases, they must overcome the evil schemes of the late Professor Moriarty's daughter—the wicked and brilliant Marie Chartier—whose only goal in life is to become the Napoleoness of Crime.
In The Adventure of the Elusive Ear, Vincent Van Gogh arrives at 221B, desperate to have Holmes recover his missing ear, leading Holmes and Adler to uncover a diabolical Post-Impressionist conspiracy thanks to the assistance of Oscar Wilde.
In The Adventure of the Fallen Soufflé, world-renowned chef Auguste Escoffier is threatened with scandal and ruin even as the gambling and womanizing Prince of Wales flees Anarchist assassins, and a plot to steal the priceless Koh-i-Noor Diamond is revealed.
In The Adventure of the Ghost Machine, the newest world-changing inventions of Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison have been stolen, and Holmes must overcome the greatest loss of his career by deducing the hidden connection between a single inch, one hundred thousand volts, and the human pulse.
