Summary
1925. With Mrs Hudson gone from their lives and domestic chaos building, the last thing Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes, need is to help an old friend with her mad and missing aunt. Lady Vivian Beaconsfield has spent most of her adult life in one asylum after another and although her mental state seemed to be improving, she's now disappeared after an outing from Bethlem Royal Hospital, better known as Bedlam. To track down the vanished woman, Russell brings to the fore her deductive instincts and talent for subterfuge and, of course, enlists her husband's legendary prowess. Together, Russell and Holmes travel from the grim confines of Bedlam to the winding canals and sun-drenched Lido cabarets of Venice - only to find the foreboding shadow of Benito Mussolini darkening the fate of a city, an era and a tormented English lady of privilege
