Description

Swashbuckling action and classic murder mystery combine in this invigorating pastiche of Arthur Conan Doyle's famous duo and Anthony Hope's Zenda novels.

A Colonel Sapt of the Ruritanian Court journeys to England on a secret mission to save the country from anarchy. His mission is to engage the services of Rudolf Rassendyll once more to impersonate the King while the monarch recovers from a serious illness.

But Rassendyll has mysteriously disappeared.

In desperation, Sapt consults Sherlock Holmes who, with his faithful companion Watson, travels to the Kingdom of Ruritania in an effort to thwart the plans of the scheming Rupert of Hentzau in his bid for the throne.


Foreign diplomats, spies, murder, kidnapping and International terrorism, Sherlock Holmes and the Hentzau Affair is a wonderful blend of detective story and rousing adventure yarn.
