However, things are not always what they seem and Holmes unlocks the key to more secrets than originally anticipated as the desperation to retrieve the manuscript grows. More mysteries unravel as what seemed like a simple case of schoolboy rebellion has turned into a story of mystery and excitement packed with plot twists and questions. Will Holmes be able to succeed against rebellious school boys and catch the culprit? Is there something more sinister walking the halls of Greyfriars School? And why is Dr Locke really so desperate to have his manuscript returned? What could it be hiding?
