It’s a snowy December in 1888. A perfumed letter featuring a doubly encoded message arrives at 221B Baker Street, London. A disastrous Ripper investigation has left Sherlock Holmes in a deep depression and back on cocaine. He travels to Paris to help find the son of a French cabaret star, but when he and Watson get there they discover more crimes--including a burglary and several murders--that seem to be connected to the kidnapping. According to Klinger, the book "… has the three key ingredients for a delicious pastiche: Meticulous research, plausibility, and grand fun!"
