THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES
The mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville is blamed on a longstanding curse that has followed the Baskerville family for two hundred years. Enigmatic sleuth Sherlock Holmes is on the case to uncover the truth about a monstrous, supernatural hound who roams the moors, waiting to attack the latest heir to the Baskerville estate.
THE CASE OF THE WHITECHAPEL VAMPIRE
The scene of the crime is Whitechapel, the very same London district notorious for the recent attacks of Jack the Ripper. Now, someone else is out for blood. Or is it something else? The answer is left to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson to find. Brother Marstroke of the Hermitage of St. Justinian the Martyr has turned to Sherlock Holmes (Matt Frewer, The Royal Scandal) to investigate a ghastly crime. An Anglican monk has been found dead in the abbey, the apparent victim of a vampire. The death has a horrifying resonance for Marstroke. Years before, an outbreak of rabies took its toll on his mission in British Guyana. Believing that bats were responsible, Marstroke ordered all of them destroyed. Then two monks were found dead, bearing the bite marks of a vampire. What's more, at each crime scene were macabre messages from Desmodo, a legendary vampire demon swearing to avenge the death of "his children." Has Desmodo struck again? To Marstroke, the answer is obvious. To Holmes, the notion is preposterous - certainly the killings must be the work of a human hand. Yet even Holmes's trusted friend, Dr. Watson (Kenneth Welsh, The Third Twin), is considering the possibility that the South American demon is indeed nesting in Whitechapel. As bizarre events unfold, Holmes also finds himself questioning what he holds most dear: logic. He may be a natural when it comes to solving crimes, but without divine intervention, how can he ever hope to solve one as unnatural as this?
THE ROYAL SCANDAL
Legendary opera star Irene Adler (Liliana Komorowska, The Art of War) is threatening to destroy the King of Bohemia's (Robin Wilcock, The Day After Tomorrow) reputation with proof of their illicit affair. The evidence? A photograph. Her ransom? The king's hand in marriage. But not only does investigating detective Sherlock Holmes (Matt Frewer, The Hound of the Baskervilles) already know Irene from the past, he also knows that the queen of manipulation would never resort to such a common crime. After uncovering her true ambitions, Holmes draws the cunning songstress into a well-matched game of cat and mouse.
