A certain amount of celebrity is inevitable when you're Sherlock Holmes's granddaughter, especially when you're also a consulting detective. But for Portia Adams, it’s getting to be a little much. She decides to escape the rabid London press by chasing a case all the way to Italy.

When she gets back, it seems that the media frenzy has finally run its course—but now she’s got bigger things to worry about. Sherlock Holmes is missing, his apartment burned to the ground. Her boyfriend, Gavin Whitaker, is acting strangely and spending too much time with unsavory people. And as if that weren’t enough, her best friend Brian isn’t speaking to her.

Can Portia right all that has happened in her brief absence or will she lose someone she loves to the gray London streets?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these Portia Adams books! This is the 3rd Portia Adams book. For some reason I thought it was the last so I expected things to wrap up a lot more quickly - particularly her relationships, whether family or friends - but unfortunately, I have to wait for more books! I really enjoyed it! Portia is so smart and a bit quirky, but she does change and grow in this book, particularly because she has become a more public figure. I like reading about London (and in this book, Italy) in the 1930s because it's like reading historical fiction and a mystery at the same time. I don't even usually read mysteries, but I like Portia. I also like the way Misri writes. It's sometimes funny, and sometimes very mysterious and suspenseful. For instance, there are parts where Portia knows what is happening, but despite it being told from her point of view, the reader is left in the dust just like her friends until the end, when she explains what she was doing. Once in a while we get to see her strong emotions, because her relationships go through a lot of changes. I recommend it for anyone who likes Sherlock Holmes or mysteries with a smart female lead, as well as anyone who likes historical fiction set in the 30s. Misri writes a lot of strong female characters who are pushing to show their worth as women to society, which is very interesting.
