Scotland Yard is puzzled. A young countess has gone missing, and Sherlock Holmes, the world's greatest detective, is summoned. Accompanied by the redoubtable Watson, Holmes must juggle the clues. What does he see? Why does he instruct Watson to bring his wife to the circus three days later? And why does Watson keep sneezing? An original Holmes adventure, it is one of Holmes' more whimsical cases.
