The Private Wife of Sherlock Holmes
ON FILM . . . You’ve seen Irene Adler as the fetchingly treacherous minx mixed up with Robert Downey Jr.’s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes as an action hero and human calculating machine.
You can see her as an apparently naked dominatrix in the BBC’s modern take on a young, totally wired Sherlock Holmes.
Or you can read about her further adventures after she bested Holmes in “A Scandal in Bohemia,” as written by New York Times Notable Book of the Year author Carole Nelson Douglas, author of the acclaimed Good Night,
Mr. Holmes and seven other novels following the adventures of Irene Adler and Sherlock Holmes after “Scandal.”
This novella, “The Private Wife of Sherlock Holmes,” reports the pair’s most recent and intriguing encounter in post-Jack the Ripper London, from Baker Street to a high society brothel. Shocking, my dear Holmes!
