"The future has not changed crime. Bad men do bad things for petty reasons and get petty punishments for their crimes. Moving forward from that point, we can come to only one conclusion: that man has certain traits inherent to his patterns of behavior free from the constraints of time and space. So, then, we must deduce that the methods of catching said criminal should not have changed as well. Put the pieces left behind by mistakes, or lack thereof, together and slowly you gain a view of the man who committed the crime. With time comes crime, and with crime comes detectives. I, sir, am Sherlock Holmes, the best detective who ever lived, and you, my good sir, have killed someone. Shall we start to put the pieces, or lack thereof, together?"
A man claiming to be the fictional detective from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories has surfaced in London and is hot on the trail of a murderer.
He has accused the chief of police of the crime and has only a short amount of time to solve it!
