From the brutal serial killer known as The Mayfair Strangler to Holmes gruesome encounter with Catacausis Ebriosis or Spontaneous Human Combustion. From the locked-room mystery of Alexander Cavendish s demise to the ruthless cunning of The Peddler of Death, Holmes needs all his deductive powers to unravel the clues and bring the guilty to justice.
