A riveting murder mystery by Christopher M. Walsh. Based on characters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
A new Sherlock Holmes case with a very definite twist. In this deadly serious and thrilling story, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are intelligent, independent women in Victorian England. It is a time when society did not value those attributes, social class distinctions are explicitly set and any rebellion against social norms was not tolerated. But neither of these smart and brave women abides by the conventions of their time – to their peril. Instead, they forego domestic accomplishments in the pursuit of helping those, particularly women, in desperate need. Trapped in an era that refuses to accept them, these unconventional professionals work together, trying to help a young wife whose husband, a high ranking, but corrupt, Scotland Yard investigator, is suspected of murdering his previous two wives. Involving many of the same characters loved by fans of Sherlock Holmes, it is a brand new and compelling play that is absolutely true to the world of stories created by the renowned Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
