I agree that the title's misleading. I hoped from the beginning that it would be. And I missed the byplay between Holmes and Russell. Nonetheless, I loved having Mrs. Hudson move from the background to the foreground. And I loved seeing the criminals shift to the foreground too. I did have to go back and reread some sections, as this one's much more complex than some others in the series. All that said, the trick works, fortunately. Will we learn more of Clarissa in Monte Carlo? That would be nice. And what will Holmes and Russell do for a housekeeper? A most satisfying read.
