The woman who “haunted” Sherlock Holmes
A Scandal in Bohemia. Irene gave him a gold sovereign for his help which he put on his watch chain. You may recall that he also received a portrait of the lady at the conclusion of the story, as well.
While Irene Adler, aka Mrs. Godfrey Norton, was a main character in only one of Doyle’s stories, she is mentioned in four other stories – until now.
“The Woman” returns in the newest collection of Sherlock Holmes stories – Sherlock Holmes – The Golden Years, by Kim H. Krisco. And, while she only lurked in the background before, she has come out of the shadows and into all five of the stories in this new collection.
Sherlock Holmes – The Golden Years will be out in eBooks soon and on line and in bookstores this fall. You can preorder at many websites including TheBookDepository.com where you get a 10% discount and FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the world: Click Here!
