    Synopsis

    Just as London is being plagued by a series of pyjama suicides, Sherlock Holmes falls into a river and drowns whilst holidaying in Scotland. Dr Watson can hardly believe his eyes when, a few days later, Holmes returns to his lodgings in Baker Street. The sleuth reveals that he staged his death to flush out the individual who is behind the fake suicides. He deduces that the culprit is a woman who preys on vulnerable men. Disguising himself as an Indian prince, Holmes lures the murderer, Adrea Spedding, and discovers her modus operandi. She persuades men who are short of money to pawn their life insurance policies, which her associates cash in after their hastily arranged deaths. But just how does Miss Spedding drive her victims to suicide? To answer that question, Holmes must gamble his life...
