The Crucifer of Blood is an ingenious pastiche of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories, primarily The Sign of Four . Taking place in 1887, it deals with the Agra Treasure stolen 30 years before by two English officers who are finally overtaken by the curse that has bedeviled them with foul horrors. The action moves from India to Baker Street to spooky Pondicherry Lodge in Maidenhead to a Limehouse opium den to a boat chase on the Thames and finally back to Baker Street for a surprise denouement.
