First edition. Signed by the author. Author's first novel. Fine in dust jacket. In the summer of 1885, in the resort town of Brighton, England, fate brings together two of the most famous English writers--Arthur Conan Doyle, the chronicler of Sherlock Holmes, and Charles Dodgson, who, as Lewis Carroll, wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Alicia goes to Brighton to spend her vacation with the Reverend Charles Dodgson. But when Dodgson arrives at the train station to meet her, she's nowhere to be found. She's been kidnapped by her father's political enemies. Dodgson meets a young doctor visiting Brighton on his honeymoon, one Arthur Conan Doyle. Together the two begin their search for Alicia. Soon the body of Alicia's nanny is found and this unlikely pair must find her before it's too late.
