Summary

In this mashup of genres Sherlock and Dr. Watson meet The Prisoner of Zenda

Colonel Sapt of the Ruritanian Court journeys to England on a secret mission to save the country from anarchy. His mission is to engage the services of Rudolf Rassendyll once more to impersonate the King while the monarch recovers from a serious illness. 

But Rassendyll has mysteriously disappeared. 

In desperation, Sapt consults Sherlock Holmes who, with his faithful companion Watson, travels to the Kingdom of Ruritania in an effort to thwart the plans of the scheming Rupert of Hentzau in his bid for the throne. 

Sherlock Holmes and the Hentzau Affair is a wonderful blend of detective story and rousing adventure yarn.

Perfectly done

This was absolutely excellent, a masterful blending of of stories and genres. Holmes and Watson where perfectly on point and the story was an enjoyable, authentic feeling mix of mystery and adventure. It was perhaps more weighted towards the latter than the former, but did not suffer in the least as a result. As someone who loves both Sherlock Holmes and the Prisoner of Zenda, it was immensely satisfying to see them come together for the kind of ending that I always wanted that story to eventually have.
