Legendary opera star Irene Adler is threatening to destroy the King of Bohemia's reputation with proof of their illicit affair. The evidence? A photograph. Her ransom? The king's hand in marriage.

After uncovering her true ambitions, Holmes draws the cunning songstress into a well-matched game of cat and mouse.

THE ROYAL SCANDAL pits Holmes against Irene Adler as she tries to blackmail the king of Bohemia into marrying her.
