Watson has traveled to an eerie island insane asylum where he has been asked to identify which one of the three patients there-all claiming to be Holmes-may be Sherlock. After all, no bodies were found three years ago when Holmes and his enemy Moriarty grappled at the top of Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland and presumably fell to their deaths. In the intervening years many imposters have stepped forward. Watson is on edge. Could one of these lunatics be the real Holmes? What follows is a masterful puzzle which will keep you guessing until it ends with the haunting, fading sound of a violin.
