Mycroft Holmes is not so unlike his younger brother Sherlock. Mystery-solving and clever solutions set in the eighteen-eighties are afoot in a collection of tales featuring "The Other Mr. Holmes". Tearing through London in hansom cabs and knee-deep in the twists and turns in pursuit of adventure alongside Mycroft is his plucky, crack-shot mistress Anna.
Mycroft and Anna pursue whodunits around every winding corner in three adventures:
"The Adventure of the Royal Revelations": Queen Victoria's personal diary goes missing and an equerry is murdered. Certainly the murderer must be found; however, the Queen's comments on some of her ministers must never reach the Continental press. Mycroft is just the man to find the murderer and save Her Majesty's reputation. Mycroft and Anna attempt to keep the damning volume out of the hands of dastardly foreign agents.
"The Adventure of the Flame of the Natal Retrospect": Mycroft and Anna set out to save the reputation of a leading actress and keep the unique gemstone, the Flame of Natal, from the grasp of audacious thieves.
"The Adventure of the Reuters' Agent Summer": Mycroft and Anna cross swords with one of the deadliest enemies of Mycroft's brother--Colonel Sebastian Moran.
