Summary

A client forsworn, a threatened town, and a Goliath of unimaginable proportions. Sherlock Holmes has survived a three-year vendetta against him by Moriarty’s remaining henchmen. Wounded and bleeding, with Mycroft’s help, he clandestinely boards an Atlantic steamship.

At the close of his great hiatus, Holmes finds sanctuary at Vassar Women’s College. This radical challenge entangles him in the web of a nefarious mystery. Its unraveling involves New York’s most revolutionary residents: Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. 

To pluck his client from danger, he drafts the 20-year-old Harry Houdini in outrageous sleight of hand. Four villains embroil the plot. The lives of everyday citizens inexorably rise to heroism. And it all begins when a 12-year-old girl matches wits with Sherlock Holmes on Market Street. 

This is a daring adventure in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. As Professor Sigerson, the pansophic gentleman of justice, Holmes is confronted by the evil that lurks within the smiling and beautiful countryside.

Wonderful Story

The story was fantastic and probably much better understood if read. The narration was difficult to follow as the characters would get lost
