'On the contrary, my dear Watson, you can see everything.
You fail, however, to reason from what you see.' Herein lie the problems: a stolen jewel, the inexplicable death of a young woman, the disappearance of one of the most remarkable racehorses in England, a missing butler, the curious symbols of dancing men, a broken bust of Napoleon, a possible kidnapping and the bad business of a coachman shot through the heart.
The solution? Elementary my dear friend. Call the super sleuth famed for his rapid deductions, his swift intuitions and ingenious solutions - Sherlock Holmes of 221b Baker Street.
Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can test your powers of observation and deduction, learn about the author and brush up on your detective skills!
