Description

Sigil. Pronounced sijil. An inscribed or painted symbol or occult sign
considered to have magical power

It's the year 1906. Rumours abound that a deadly plot is hatching - not in
the fog-ridden back-alleys of London's Limehouse district or the sinister
Devon moors of the Hound of the Baskervilles but in faraway Peking.
Holmes's task - discover whether such a plot exists and if so, foil it.

But are the assassins targeting the young and progressive Ch'ing Emperor
or his imperious aunt, the fearsome Empress Dowager Cixi?

The murder of either could spark a civil war.

China's fate and the interests of Britain's Empire in the Orient could be
at stake.

Holmes and Watson take up the mission with their customary confidence –
until they find they are no longer in the familiar landscapes of Edwardian
England. Instead, they tumble into the Alice In Wonderland world of The
Forbidden City.
