With a knock on the door, a stranger enters Sherlock Holmes's Baker Street rooms, begging Holmes to solve a ghastly and perplexing mystery. The legendary detective and his longtime friend Dr. Watson set out to explore the scene of the crime, making headway where the literally clueless police have failed. Combining an acute eye for the telling detail with an encyclopedic knowledge of the most esoteric subjects, Holmes follows the clues on a circuitous and perilous path until he solves the case in dramatic fashion. Back at Baker Street, he readily explains to Watson any point in the chain of reasoning that might have escaped the old boy's understanding.
