SHERLOCK HOLMES - THE CLEVER ONE
In “The Clever One,” inspired by Conan Doyle’s “A Case of Identity,” a former nun who, while still very devout, has renounced her vows so that she could “find a life, and possibly love, in the real world.” Bewildered and heartbroken, she comes to Holmes in hopes that he can find out what happened to the man who promised to marry her, but mysteriously disappeared moments before they were to meet in church for the ceremony.
Sherlock Holmes IV is a direct descendant of the famed detective whose daring exploits were so vividly chronicled by Dr. John Watson and related to us by Arthur Conan Doyle.
“Witty and clever, with a whole new cast of characters to support this new Holmes and this new Watson. They live in a small boutique hotel on Lincoln Road called Fleming House (named after Sherlock the IV's love for James Bond author Ian Fleming). Holmes paces about in the penthouse while Watson (yes, he's a direct descendant of Dr. Watson) manages Fleming House. The cast of supporting characters, from the unseen tempestuous Chef Hilario to the gay manager of the Crown Colony restaurant in the hotel, Bjorn Karlsen, who has to put up with the chef, are refreshing and contemporary.”
