SHOW: Sherlock Holmes: John Watson's Body
By C. P. Stancich
STORY: The Great Detective and his loyal sidekick are at odds. Watson makes a discovery that soon draws Holmes into his investigation. A wicked web of murder, larceny and intrigue.
While Mr. Watson has gone to investigate the possible theft of a priceless set of emeralds at the London home of Lord and Lady Delton, Sherlock remains at Baker street entertaining his friend, Oscar Dove. Believing that Watson is on a fools errand until he finds and loses a body, Sherlock finds himself drawn into the web. The body turns out to be surprisingly agile, and the suspects many.
