Thank you so much to Arcturus and Netgalley for the ebook to read and review.

Review: The king of Bohemia is being threatened by an actress who he once used to be in love with, she has a photograph of them together and threatens to ruin his prospective marriage to a princess. He recruits Holmes to help him get the picture back.

This wa a very simple case and not a great deal really happened within this one, in my opinion. It was still a interesting read and I had no idea how Holmes was planning to get the picture back for his client, I just didn’t feel like it was a very exciting case, just a simple blackmailing of exes story.

This series is such fun and even though this case wasn’t one I cared for very much, I still liked reading it and seeing this case unfolding and how Holmes snook around to do all he wanted to do for the case.
