of a scar-faced man with piercing eyes who has stalked him in
recent weeks. Intrigued by the man's tale, Holmes and Watson find
themselves swiftly drawn into a series of puzzling and sinister

remaining utterly true to the spirit of the original Conan Doyle
books. Sherlock Holmes is back with all the nuance, pace and powers
of deduction that make him the world's greatest and most celebrated
