The world’s greatest fictional detective confronts the most complex case of all – his own psyche!  It is 1916.  Drawn from retirement for the funeral of his friend, Dr. Watson, Holmes returns to Baker Street to resolve … the last act of his epic career. 

Stripping away his infamous clinical façade, Holmes reveals his fears and weaknesses, and the devastating consequences of the dramas of his formative years.
