The dynamic duo are back on stage in a wild adventure that will keep you guessing until the end! The Crucifer of Blood -- by Paul Giovanni.
When Irene St. Clair calls on Sherlock Holmes, fearing for her father’s safety, Holmes is intrigued and Watson is smitten. With every clue, this exotic mystery becomes more deadly. Can the master detective save the day, or will an ingenious villain stay one step ahead of Holmes at every turn? Will the curse of the Treasure of Agra harm all who touch it? From the blood oath made over the chest of jewels in India, this thriller moves us throughout foggy London, from Baker Street to the spooky Pondicherry Lodge, to a Limehouse opium den to a boat chase on the Thames…and finally back to Baker Street. An adventure for the whole family!
