1886: A peaceful evening at 221B Baker Street is interrupted by the arrival of a man holding Mrs. Hudson at gunpoint. As the full forces of the Metropolitan Police gather outside the front door, Sherlock Holmes must solve this case without leaving Baker Street, or risk the lives of everyone inside.
