The Story: Dr. Watson stops by Baker Street and finds Holmes in the early throes of a new case. Holmes is waiting for a gentleman whose arrival was announced by a cryptic note. The man calls on him that evening, wearing a mask to conceal his identity. He explains that he represents the King of Bohemia, and has a delicate situation that must be handled quickly and discretely. The King was involved with a woman named Irene Adler. Now that the King is to be married to someone else, Miss Adler has threatened to send a photograph to the King’s fiancée revealing their romance. Holmes agrees to take the case and manages to draw the reluctant, but excited, Watson into the fray. Has Holmes gotten himself in too deep this time? Is Irene Adler a more difficult adversary than even Professor Moriarity? The answers Holmes discovers will have a lasting effect on his psyche.
