When the 30-year old disappearance of a famous actor comes
to haunt a family friend, Lady Frances Ffolkes returns to
track a murderer through the theaters of Edwardian
One-named stunning actress Helen mysteriously vanished 30
years ago. An elderly family friend is unable to bear not
knowing any longer and commissions Lady Frances Ffolkes to
track her down. Taking on the role of Lady Sherlock, with
her loyal maid Mallow drafted as her Watson, Frances finds
herself immersed in the glamorous world of Edwardian
theater and London’s latest craze—motion pictures.
As Frances and Mallow make their way through the theaters,
they meet colorful figures such as George Bernard Shaw and
King Edward II. Tracking the theaters seems like a dead
end. That is until one of Helen’s old suitors is suddenly
murdered. With the stakes raised, Frances and Mallow work
quickly to uncover a box of subtle clues to Helen’s
whereabouts. But someone unexpected wants that box just as
badly and is willing to kill to keep it shut.
