A locked-room crime mystery where the imagination of Sherlock Holmes merges with the world of Alice in Wonderland.

The members of staff at the Clarendon, the Portsmouth sanatorium, are unaware that two of the most extraordinary men of their time count among their inmates. On the one hand, there is a new patient, the Reverend Charles Dodgson, better known by the pseudonym under which he has written a book that has become a resounding success in England: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. On the other hand, there is Mr X, an arrogant, intractable blind man whom only the affable nurse Anne McCarey can cope with - and she even seems to admire him. She is one of the few people capable of seeing beyond Mr X's facade, for he possesses a miraculous capacity for deduction that enables him to solve mysteries without leaving his room, where he lives in seclusion. 

In this second instalment of the series, Mr X has to push his extravagant methods to the limit to find out who is behind a series of horrible crimes inspired by the imagination of Lewis Carroll.
