Watson has inherited all of manuscripts of his famous forebear. Over a hundred years passed and the manuscript is found and is ready to be told. The book contains five different stories: "The Case of the Scotched, Soused, & Strung Scotsman" which was supposedly suppressed because Freemasonry references, "Dr. Watson & the Cartomancer" for its close relationship with Conan Doyle himself, "The Colonial Conspiracy" was deemed too politically sensitive and the final two stories, "Bertie" and "Sherlock Holmes & Jack the Ripper" involved the Royal Family and could not be obfuscated. All five stories feature intriguing mental puzzles that are set to engage one's analytic and deduction skills. It explores crime and justice issues along with the concept equality before the law is a prerequisite for a safe society.
