The House of Silk

An intricate and rewarding mystery in the finest Victorian tradition.

London 1869.
221B Baker Street.
A fine arts dealer, Edmund Carstairs, visits Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson to beg for their help. He is being menaced by a strange man in a flat cap - a wanted criminal who seems to have followed him from America. In the days that follow, Carstairs's home is robbed and his family is threatened. And then the first murder takes place.
