Island of the Mad Paperback / softback

Part of the Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series



June, 1925. A rare peaceful evening is cut short when Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes receive a frantic phone call from an old friend.

In their search for the missing women, Russell and Holmes follow the trail from the cold, harsh hospital wards through Europe to the ethereal beauty of Venice.

Caught up in decadent soirees, the rising tide of fascism and the myth of a haunted madhouse, the pair will discover that there are secrets hidden in the lagoon - and that every Venetian wears a mask ...
