In 1896, while visiting Chicago, Sherlock Holmes receives a letter from James J. Hill, asking the detective to come to St. Paul to investigate the disappearance of Jonathan Upton on the eve of the man's wedding. Holmes, accompanied by Dr. Watson, travels to Minnesota where the Twin City is hosting its annual winter carnival. However, instead of finding a missing person, Jonathan's severed head is found amidst the ice sculptures. Soon, Holmes, Watson and local bartender Shadwell Rafferty attempt to solve the case, taking both of them to the highest levels of local power, the frozen Mississippi river and the Winter Carnival ice palace. A fun read, as a Twin Cities resident I particularly enjoyed learning about the history of the city of St. Paul, the politics of the city at the time and the tradition of the Winter Carnival. 3 out of 5 stars.
