Mr. Sherlock Holmes did not always see eye to eye with Inspector Lestrade of the Metropolitan Police but, when disgrace and financial ruin loomed before Lestrade, it was to Baker Street that the Scotland Yard man went for help.
An old case, badly handled, had returned to haunt Lestrade. An apparently innocent man, who had spent twenty years in gaol as a consequence of Lestrade’s failure, was released on appeal, determined to exact his revenge on the man who had put him behind bars. Holmes’s interest is stirred, and he and Lestrade, along with Dr. Watson, attempt to solve the new case, and to clear Lestrade of the accusations made over the old one.
A treat awaits every reader as the mystery unfolds.
