In 1915, long since retired from his crime-fighting days, Sherlock Holmes is engaged in a reclusive study of honeybees on the Sussex Downs. Never did the Victorian detective think to meet an intellect matching his ownuntil his acquaintance with Miss Mary Russell, a young twentieth-century lady whose mental acuity is equaled only by her penchant for deduction, disguises, and danger. Under Holmess reluctant tutelage,

Russell embarks on a case involving a landowners mysterious fever and the kidnapping of an American senators daughter in the wilds of Wales. Then a near-fatal bomb on her doorstepand another on Holmesssends the two sleuths on the trail of a murderer who scatters bizarre clues and seems utterly without motive. The villains objective, however, is quite unequivocal: to end Russell and Holmess partnershipand then their lives.
