Summary: To the delight of all Holmes and mystery fans, a second intriguing manuscript is "unearthed": a strange and terrible tale of the celebrated detective's 1896 return to Minnesota, the scene of Sherlock Holmes and the Red Demon, a work praised by Sherlockian experts for its outstanding authenticity. There, in the "dead tough" city of St. Paul, bustling with its annual Winter Carnival, the son of a noted businessman has disappeared. It is the eve of his wedding, but even before Holmes can search the Ice Palace where he was last seen, the young man's fianc*e inexplicably gives her bridal gown away.The case takes Holmes to the highest levels of power and corruption--and into a battle of competing wits with one Shadwell Rafferty, a genial, giant, Irish saloonkeeper who specializes in "discreet investigations." To penetrate the dark heart of the matter, Holmes must brave the Mississippi's frigid waters and confront the villain amid the roar of rockets, in one of the most thrilling episodes "Watson" ever committed to paper.
