Synopsis

Sherlock Holmes’ career as an arcane investigator is quite well established when Martha Hudson introduces him to Helen Stoner, a runaway who fears her guardian is attempting to murder her for her inheritance. An encounter with the inhumanly strong Dr Roylott convinces Holmes that the affair deserves his attention, so he and Martha accompany Miss Stoner to Dr Roylott’s estate. Holmes’ fears are confirmed when the good Doctor attempts to drug them all during dinner and, beneath the cover of a storm, they encounter shape-shifters, a monstrous demon, and a woman who all believed dead. Can they overcome the evil lurking within and beneath Dr Roylott’s mansion in order to free Helen from their host’s evil schemes?

About the Author
