A SANDAL FROM EAST ANGLIA. To Sherlock Holmes she will always be The Nun. But is this brilliant young woman carrying on a secret double life - a life far too sensual for a member of a holy order? She is helping archeological excavations at the ruined Abbey of St. Edmund, where a sealed canister has been unearthed. In it is a document that has the potential to change the course of the British Empire and all of Christendom.
The Bishop of the Abbey seeks the help of Sherlock Holmes. A few days later he is dead and the Nun has vanished along with the secret document.
There are some evil young men who are prepared to rob, and beat, and even commit murder to keep the contents of the ancient charter from ever becoming known. The Nun is determined to use the document to improve the lives of women throughout the world. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are called upon to protect the young woman, catch the killers, and trap the evil men who are greedily plotting against her.
The mystery is inspired by the original Sherlock Holmes story, A Scandal in Bohemia as well as the Magna Carta and is tied to some actual historical events of seven hundred years ago - with some imagination added. Fans of Sherlock Holmes will enjoy a new story that maintains all the loved and familiar characters and settings of Victorian England.
