The Further Adventures of Dragos and Holmes: Everything Dear (The Adventures of Dragos and Holmes #2)
Meanwhile, Holmes, who appears to being going through a harrowing midlife crisis, is himself in danger. A mysterious young Frenchman named Laurent, who aggressively seduced him at a soirée for the King of Sweden, has turned out to be an extortionist. He has threatened the detective with exposure, and ultimately with murder. All of this comes in the midst of the sensational Oscar Wilde trial in London, which is causing an eruption of public sentiment against ‘men of a certain persuasion.’
This is a book of adventure, romance, humor, melodrama and historical fiction, meticulously researched. As in Book 1, the style of storytelling honors its eighteenth and nineteenth century precursors: Tom Jones, Fanny Hill, the romances of Alexandre Dumas, and of course, the detective novels of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
