Artists are singularly passionate people.
Some are so intense, they commit suicide.
Some commit murder.
A popular French artist living in London has an appointment to see Sherlock Holmes. He fails to appear. Why? Because he is dead. Suicide? Or murder?
Holmes is asked to investigate. He quickly learns that nothing in the world of art is what is seems. Two thousand years ago, Aristotle said that all art was mimesis, a representation of reality. It seems that artists themselves, and their wives, are also not what they appear to be.
This new mystery takes Holmes and Watson into the world of late Victorian art where he meets the famous, the infamous and a horde of talented women artists who will have their first opportunity to exhibit their work to the world … or will they?
Join Sherlock Holmes as he attempts to destroy a murderous villain even if it means using himself as bait.
