Sherlock Holmes is one of the most talented investigators in the world, and has solved case after case with his intelligence and intuition.

The case gets more complicated every step of the way, with Sherlock always being just a few steps behind the enemies. He follows clue after clue across the city attempting to track down and determine the fate of John Douglas, to bring resolution to the case and to Douglas’s loved ones. Douglas’s wife thinks his disappearance has something to do with the “Valley of Fear,” a mysterious reference to his past life in America.
