Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425198456, Paperback)Entering into service as housekeeper for the distinguished investigator Sherlock Holmes and his associate Dr. Watson, Mrs. Hudson expands her duties beyond keeping things tidy.
The great detective's latest client is a traveler recently returned from the Far East-and nearly killed under mysterious circumstances. He says he's under a Sumatran curse that will end his life.
While Holmes and Watson seek a less superstitious solution to the man's dilemma, Mrs. Hudson and Flottie, the orphan girl in her care, take it upon themselves to investigate the case. They are determined to solve the mystery-even if it entails pointing Mrs. Hudson's employers in the right direction.

"Newly employed as housekeeper to the eminent detective Sherlock Homes and the ever-present Dr. Watson, the stalwart Mrs. Hudson tends to mind her own affairs as long as others mind theirs. But when a terrified young man shows up pleading for help from Holmes, she finds herself a bit more involved than usual. It seems that the young man, recently returned from the Far East, claims to be living in mortal fear of a Sumatran curse he's fallen under, which has already caused him to experience a narrow escape from death. Holmes, of course, doesn't believe in such rubbish, and goes about searching for a more earthbound explanation, with Watson's help." "Mrs. Hudson doesn't believe in curses either, but she does know that there's more than one way to catch a killers. So, using her own inimitable common sense and somewhat formidable personality, she sets out to solve the case with the assistance of the loyal Flottie - an orphan girl she rescued from a wretched fate. Even as she finds herself one step ahead of her own employer at times, Mrs. Hudson soon realizes that in this game of lethal cat-and-mouse, catching a killer is one thing - but keeping a killer from catching you is quite another."--BOOK JACKET.
