The Fifth Heart
1893: Sherlock Holmes and Henry James come to the US to solve the mystery of the 1885 death of Clover Adams - the suspected foul play may involve matters of national importance.

This leads to complications for James, for if his fellow investigator is a work of fiction, what does that make him? And what can the storyteller do to fight against the sinister power - possibly named Moriarty - that may or may not be controlling them from the shadows?
