Her new client? None other than Sherlock's friend, Dr. John Watson! His mission: to employ Dr. Ragostin to find the missing Enola! She decides to take the case, only so she can keep tabs on Sherlock's every move to locate her. Yet Ivy Meshle is just one of Enola's disguises. In her search for a missing teenager, the Lady Cecily Alistair, she alternately poses as Lady Ragostin, wife of her non-existent employer, and as "Sister," the kindly nun who braves the dangerous nighttime alleys to bring comfort to the homeless. All the time she and Sherlock play a game of cat and mouse. This beautifully drawn graphic novel adaptation also includes a portfolio of pages from Enola's secret notebook.

As a tribute to his genius, and to mark the occasion, The Holmes Sutra is presented (by a crazed fan) as: (a) a compilation of one hundred and sixty mantras (aphorisms/slogans/sayings - call them what you will) - some original, some canonical, some based on various print/media adaptations - aimed to make Sherlock Holmes (and his fans) smile, and (b) a test of the readers' Holmes Mania Quotient (HMQ)- based on the resulting HMQ score, the particular condition/stage of Holmes Mania would be determined, with possibilities of a cure. Happy birthday, Sherlock - this is your birthday gift; hope you like it.
