Recovering from a broken leg after his ignominious fall from the Titanic, Superintendent Lestrade goes to convalesce at the home of his betrothed Fanny Berkeley and her father Tom.

Synopsis:

Recovering from a broken leg after his ignominious fall from the Titanic, Superintendent Lestrade goes to convalesce at the home of his betrothed, Fanny Berkeley and her father Tom, the Chief Constable of Surrey. An attempt on the life of his future father-in-law makes Lestrade realize that a policeman is never really off duty. A mysterious letter addressed to Lestrade follows the attempt.

So begins one of Sholto Lestrade's most mystifying cases; a case that encompasses not only the present but the past, as the mysterious letter refers to some of Lestrade's yet-unsolved cases.
