Chapter One
WHEN TWO STRONG MEN…
 
 
Near Sangbur, Afghanistan: July 25, 1880
 
In the very lap of Asia lies a land so fierce and desolate—if not undefended—that were the demons of every faith to collaborate in creating a Hell that would prostrate Christian, Hebrew and Moslem alike in united terror, its name would remain…Afghanistan.
Stretching horizontally across the neck of the Indian subcontinent like a hangman’s noose, Afghanistan bridges Persia on the west and Tibet and China on the east; British India on the south; and to the north—the great outstretched

Praise for Irene At Large

"An absolutely ripping adventure!" --Anne Perry, author of Belgrave Square

"In a delightful encore, Victorian diva/detective Irene Adler Norton engages in a battle of wits with Sherlock Holmes and a vicious killer seeking to hide a traitorous past...Irene lures Holmes, just concluding the "Naval Treaty" case, into the hunt. Douglas has penned a delightful romp in this Victorian adventure novel about the only woman Sherlock Holmes ever admired, and indeed she lives up to the honor." --Publishers Weekly

"Weaves a new mystery together with strands of Holmesiana that includes the background of Col. Sebastian Moran and the location of Dr. Watson's migrating war wound. After a prologue darkly hinting treachery in the 1880 Afghanistan conflict, Quentin vanishes, leaving behind a trail of deadly cobras evidently set to attack him, his late servant, and Watson--a trail Irene is avid to follow. Holmes and Irene do their most charming (if in Holmes's case, unwitting) work together." --Kirkus Reviews

"Irene Adler, the dashing heroine of Irene at Large, is the flamboyant creature who will always be "the woman" to Sherlock Holmes...Ms. Douglas's plot ingenuity remains fresh and amusing, and for all its fanciful turns, the action never loses its jaunty, high-heeled pace." --The New York Times
