Sherlock Holmes' older brother Mycroft and Mycroft's secretary Guthrie are forced into a delicate political situation when a series of discreet negotiations between England and Japan is threatened in the wake of a diplomat's murder

Acknowledged by his brother, Sherlock, as the smarter, more observant of the two, the enigmatic Mycroft Holmes appeared in only four of the original Conan Doyle stories. Now, with Embassy Row, Fawcett brings us more skulduggery and sabotage, concealed identities and double agents - written in true Conan Doyle style.
Paterson Guthrie has grown comfortable in his current employment as Mycroft Holmes' secretary. At present, he is accompanying Mycroft to a series of discreet negotiations with the Japanese, intended to secure England's position in Japanese-controlled waters. But there are those who would like to see these talks come to naught. Many highly placed Englishmen do not wish to ally themselves with a people they consider inferior to their own, and certainly the Japanese are wary of close ties with a society they find increasingly hostile. And why exactly is the flirtatious Miss Gatspy lurking around the embassy - is she after information or Guthrie?
Despite many setbacks, misunderstandings, and suspicious accidents, the agreement nears completion. But the night the papers are to be signed and sealed, a British diplomat, whose opposition to the negotiations is no secret, is found dead with a Japanese dagger in his back. Mycroft and Guthrie must solve his murder, expose the agitators behind it, and see to the finalization of the agreement - without finding themselves on the wrong end of the knife.
