Once again Anna and Mycroft Holmes tear through London in hansom cabs as they pursue three further adventures set in the eighteen-eighties. Mycroft puffs and pants his way through his cases, applying not only his keen mind but also, in one case, the precepts of the Kama Sutra, while Anna hobnobs with Buffalo Bill, Henry Irving and Oscar Wilde.

In "The Deadwood Stage" an anarchist threatens mayhem at Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and Anna finds herself having to impersonate Miss Annie Oakley before the Prince of Wales.

Anna is accused of committing murder during a performance at the Lyceum Theatre. Henry Irving and Ellen Terry believe in her innocence, but will Inspector Athelney Jones? The answer lies in "Murder At The Lyceum".

"The Green-painted Door" is the site of a hideous slaying in Wimbledon. Oscar Wilde may exercise his scornful wit, but Mycroft Holmes is roused to action again. His privately-printed copy of the Kama Sutra (translated by Sir Richard Burton) stimulates another kind of action as Anna has every reason to know.
