The story takes place in 1913. Sherlock Holmes, in virtual retirement, is persuaded to take on a baffling case by Alec MacDonald of Scotland Yard. Three corpses have been found in London's East End - with no visible cause of death. But, judging by the expressions on their faces, they died in conditions of unspeakable terror.
Holmes, accompanied by Doctor Watson, begins his investigation, but before he can make any real progress he is visited by the Home Secretary and a German Diplomat, Graf Udo Von Felseck. They tell him how a German envoy, on a secret mission to Britain, has disappeared from Von Felseck's house in Buckinghamshire. Unless Holmes can track him down, war between the two countries will become imminent.
Are the cases related and is his client being truthful?
