Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler — working against each other or with each other?

Irene Adler and her companion, Nel Huxleigh, are visiting America, searching for her parentage. She has spent her life never having memories of her childhood or family. Nelly Bly, the American newswoman, had contacted Irene claiming she knew of Irene’s parentage.

Sherlock Holmes is visiting America and has been enlisted by William K. Vanderbilt to solve the mystery of the murdered man found on Vanderbilt’s billiard table. It’s to be done without police or publicity.

A lead that Irene and Nel are tracking is regarding Lola Montez and the Lady In Black. Are they one and the same? Both figures have racy pasts and royal connections and both with references that applied to Irene’s mother.

The trails Adler and Holmes are tracking cross with possible connections. The two are wary of each other due to previous dealings. Yet both recognize the abilities they share that could benefit their cases. There is also a possibility of attraction to each other.

Set in 1889 New York, it is a good visit to another time with some interesting characters and plots.

This was a good mystery book, not the best one I have ever read but it kept me intrigued. I actually did like most of the characters, even if they were all sort of a trope and kind of weird. This book has a cat element that is clearly evident from the cover and the first pages. The problem was that the chapters that were narrated by the cat were not chapters I enjoyed very much. Luckily for me those chapters didn't come up very often but in a book that's kind of short I wanted to enjoy all of it. I really liked Detective Molina's character for some reason when she was first introduced, but as the game went on it seemed like all the other characters hated her. The main character even equated he to a Nazi once, which I did not like at all. I did like the setting for this book at a book publishers conference because I like book themes in books. Without giving anything away, I wasn't a big fan on how they wrapped up the mystery. It was one of those big reveal type situation but it felt to fast to me and I wasn't very satisfied. Overall with this book, I may pick up another in this series if I want something fun and easy to read, because I did find this book a fun and easy read, but the next book won't be high on my TBR list, and with all the other books I have to read, I know if I do read another book in this series it won't be soon. I would say if you're thinking of picking up this book, do so if you just want a fun mystery and maybe read something else if you want something with more depth.… (més)

Searching for a good tasteful mystery and thought I would give this book a try -- who could go wrong with Sherlock Holmes. Not bad, not great. Certainly did not desire to read more from this author at this time.
