We'll never know for sure if Lola Montez (aka Eliza Gilbert) really was Irene's mother but what an act to follow! She is as fascinating and dangerous dead as she ever was alive. The Vanderbilt mystery that Sherlock is investigating invariably gets tangled up in Irene's own investigation into her past and so they must team up to discover why a shadowy group of murderers are hunting for information about Irene's (possible) mother. What did she possess that is so valuable 30 years later...

Nellie Bly is, as ever, a wonderful annoyance to Irene and a constant threat to Nell's peace of mind. The ensemble works beautifully together: operatic diva, former governess, consulting detective, international spy, lady reporter, lawyer and cast of irregulars. This series is a nice extension of the Sherlock Holmes stories.
