A fast-paced, Sherlock Holmes-style adventure mystery with the action-comedy of “Indiana Jones,” period charm, and a fascinating female lead.

From the Private Files of Scotland Yard Commissioner Rushworth Ramsgate - Part Five:
An Ancient Curse!
I do not profess to have an under-standing of the female of the species, but I did think I had the measure of Lady Dorrington’s insatiable appetite for the unusual and mysterious.Yet, she has confounded me!
I have invited her to participate in a murder investigation with implications that threaten the peace of all Europe.It would be impossible to find higher stakes!
However, with a logic that eludes me, Tasha is more intrigued with saving the life of a sheep-farmer on an island in Scotland. The fellow claims he is threatened by – of all the absurdities – an ancient demon more at home in a book of legends than a police report.
How can Tasha balance the life of one against the fate of millions?I may fathom the workings of the criminal mind, but the logic of ladies is a mystery I, alas, cannot pierce.
