Ten years on from Holmes and Watson’s sleuthing days, something is amiss at the prestigious and exclusive Abbey School . Young Lord Whitechurch is accused of stealing money from the headmaster’s office. But as one of the wealthiest pupils, why would he do that?
This seemingly trivial mystery is soon overshadowed by the apparent suicide of the Third’s form master, Mr Greville. And Holmes is not convinced that this was a tragic accident. His interest piqued, Holmes enlists the help of his trusty side-kick Dr. Watson, who takes over Greville’s teaching position as he investigates the staff and unearths the school’s secrets.
And when Watson encounters a certain Mr. Tromarty, he begins to wonder if there is a connection to the late Moriarty …
Then another member of staff is found dead – and Holmes and Dr. Watson must work fast to unravel the mysterious web of circumstances and suspicion. And it’s not just the school that is in danger … Holmes and Watson suspect that the country itself could be under threat…
Can Holmes and Watson solve the Abbey School Mystery before others meet their untimely end? Or will death and destruction extend beyond the school gates?
