Summary

In England’s silent-film industry, Randolph Fflytte is king. Mary Russell is dispatched to investigate the criminal activities that surround Fflytte’s movie studio, but nothing seems amiss until the company starts rehearsals in Lisbon. 

There the 13 blonde-haired, blue-eyed actresses whom Mary is bemusedly chaperoning meet the swarm of real buccaneers Fflytte has recruited to provide authenticity. As movie make-believe becomes true terror, Russell and Holmes themselves may experience a final fade-out.

Love the series Hated this book

I have listened to all previous books in this series and found them delightful. Full of suspense and adventure along with all the quirky moments expected in a Sherlock Holmes novel. This had none of those. I kept waiting for the story to begin and it just became more and more tedious with no appearance of a plot. Very disappointed!

Russell and Holmes, always amusing.

I have enjoyed every book about these two characters. The tête-à-tête between them and the twists of the plot are very entertaining. A very good listen.
