Mary Russell—Sherlock Holmes’ much younger wife—in­ves­ti­gates the odd goings on in a British silent film company that’s making a pirate film on location in Lisbon and Morocco in 1924. The filmmakers get more than they bargained for, as the rogues they cast as pirates seem to be real pirates.

A decent entry in this series.
