Sherlock Holmes and The Case of the Jersey Lily

Katie Forgette
The wit of Oscar Wilde meets the cunning of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle when Wilde brings his dear friend, Lillie Langtry, to Baker Street. Someone has stolen the highly intimate letters Lillie exchanged with the Prince of Wales, and now she is being blackmailed. Only Holmes can solve the case, going so far as to disguise himself as an early version of Lady Bracknell from Wilde's latest play, The Importance of Being Forthright, while Watson falls head-over-heels for the Jersey Lily and a wicked professor attempts to bring the Crown to its knees.

Reviews

Pioneer Press

"...a quick-paced, witty...confection that goes down like iced lemonade on a summer scorcher."

Herald Courier

"If you've been hankering for a right jolly bit of theatrical sleuthing British style, you'd be hard put to it, indeed, to ferret out better fare than Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily..."

Jonathan Turner, Quad-Cities Online

"A faithful, loving tribute to the colorful British characters of Sherlock Holmes and Oscar Wilde, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Jersey Lily by Seattle playwright Katie Forgette fancifully fuses fact and fiction."
