Gemma Doyle probes a murder most irregular
Legendary actor Sir Nigel Bellingham arrives on Cape Cod to star in a production of The Hound of the Baskervilles. When the cast and director visit the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop at 222 Baker Street, Gemma Doyle realizes that Sir Nigel is long past his prime—and a drunk. The cast is not happy, but the show must go on.
Before the play opens, Jayne Wilson’s mother, Leslie, arranges a fundraising tea. When Sir Nigel is found dead at the bottom of the rocky cliff, Gemma finds evidence incriminating Leslie. When handsome detective Ryan Ashburton and suspicious detective Louise Estrada focus on Leslie despite the other suspects, it’s up to the highly perceptive Gemma and the ever-confused Jayne to clear Leslie’s name.
