Irene's Last Waltz
“Some women are born to have grand adventures,” wrote the New York Times of Irene Adler, the only woman ever to outwit Sherlock Holmes. Carole Nelson Douglas’s previous novels about this fascinating beauty (GOOD NIGHT, MR. HOLMES; GOOD MORNING, IRENE; and IRENE AT LARGE) have charmed delighted readers, winning critical acclaim, and IRENE’S LAST WALTZ is undoubtably Irene’s most daring-and dangerous- adventure.
The ever irresistible Irene Adler, her dashing barrister husband Godfrey Norton and the indomitable Miss Nell Huxleigh have arrived at last at their French cottage-having survived (but just barely) the dastardly plots, Russian spies, pistol-wielding criminals... and the occasional cobra.
Our happy trio seek nothing but rest and peace.
But Irene has always chafed under idle conditions, and Paris, she says, “is pretty and urbane, but hardly a center of excitement.” So when Charles Frederick Worth, the Parisian King of Couture invites Irene to become
his “mannequin de ville,” to wear the fabulous Worth creations to stimulate his trade, Irene leaps at the chance.
But what was a joyous lark soon turns into a journey that can lead to disgrace, dishonor...and death.
For Irene, Nell and Godfrey are drawn into a series of events that will compel Irene to the one place that she daren’t go-and to the one man she must not confront.
To Prague and the King of Bohemia.
