The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline: An Enola Holmes Mystery

Out of stock
"CARRIER PIGEON, DELIVER YOUR BIRD-BRAINED MESSAGE AT ONCE OR YOU WILL BE SORRY YOU EVER LEFT SCUTARI." Enola Holmes is shocked when her unassuming landlady, Mrs. Tupper, receives a threatening letter through the morning's post. Mrs. Tupper became a widow during the Crimean War, so Scutari is familiar to her, but she can't make sense of the rest of the message. Hoping to end the matter quickly, Enola places ads in the local papers noting that "Mrs. T." knows nothing and that "further inquiries are pointless"-only to return home that evening to find that Mrs. Tupper has been kidnapped.
