The fireman had seen a skeleton, wearing a dress coat, whose head was aflame. I was deeply worried for the missing young woman. If she had been taken by the opera ghost, be he flesh or spirit, how would she fare if she rejected his 'love'? All worries were momentarily forced out of my head when a sudden squawk rang out across the opera house. "I cannot believe this! Me; a ...more

The 20-page short story takes Sherlock Holmes and his long-term partner, Watson, to Paris to solve the disappearance of a budding opera singer and love interest of Raoul, a member of a prominent French family. The famous investigative duo is summoned to France by Raoul’s brother, who is concerned Raoul may have been involved in the girl’s disappearance, bringing dishonor to his family.

Possible suspects begin to pile up quickly after Holmes and Watson arrive at the Paris opera house. Prior to her

This is the second Holmes short story I have read by Ms. Cartawick, both being quite different, and yet at the same time very similar to one another.

In the Case of the Cracked Mirror, Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion find themselves in Paris, investigating the disappearance of a young girl, believed to be done by the famed Opera Ghost. This story is different in every way from the previous, starting fresh on a new continent, with new characters and new challenges for the featured duo.

I received this book from the author in exchange for a review. A very enjoyable read.

It is a short story but one with such an authentic narrative that I could actually hear the accent in my head as I read. This is a story about Sherlock Holmes and his side-kick Watson, who are called away to Paris to investigate the disappearance of a young woman.

We follow the story through Watsons POV. He always seemed to be one step behind Holmes but gave the reader food for thought as to who could be behind

I enjoyed reading this story about the disappearance at the Paris Opera House and the subsequent investigation by Sherlock Holmes. I normally do not read this genre too often, and I thought the author did a good job in developing the characters and intrigue behind the disappearance of Christine Daae. And of course everyone is familiar with Sherlock Holmes and Watson, and the story worked well in capturing the relationship between the two characters and the Holmes' approach to solving the ...more

I read this story as included in THE SPHINX COLLECTION:

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle speaks again through Pennie Mae Cartawick. I grew up reading classic mysteries featuring Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple and, I must say, Ms Cartawick's perfectly hits the mark. Her pacing and prose fits in perfectly with the style created in Doyle's original work.
I don't want to give any spoilers so all I'll say is The Sphinx Collection includes three cases for Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Watson.
