Doyle finds Lovecraft's apartment ransacked, Detective Mullins believes Lovecraft, now in an asylum, is resposible for the murder and one earlier one.

After the death of his wife, Dr Mortimer leaves Grimpen, but is talked out of retiring by Watson, who sets him up as locum to an old friend from Bart's, Eustace Ferraby. One of his first patients is the highly-strung Lavinia Nancarrow. Her guardian, Archibald Boynton-Leigh, insists that anything Mortimer wishes to give her must first be passed to him. When he arrives at the house, he runs into Dr Violet Branscombe, whom Boynton-Leigh accuses of interfering in his ward's affairs. He removes unprescribed bottles of laudanum and bromide of potassium from Lavinia's room. In Kensington Gardens, he encounters Tooke, who says he is in love with Lavinia, and who had been ordered to stay away from her by Boynton-Leigh and told that she must never marry. He also tells Mortimer about the artist, Agar, his rival suitor, who is hunting works by the artist Zoffany for an American collector. On his next visit, he learns that Lavinia has not been out of the house since she arrived in London. He renews his acquaintance with Violet, who tells him that Agar is a middleman in the flesh trade, whom she is hoping to bring to justice. After playing chess in the Warsaw Cafe, Mortimer is attacked on the street and rescued by Agar.

After Ferraby returns, Mortimer accepts Violet's offer of a post at her Whitechapel surgery. From a burglar contact they learn of Agar's involvement in an attempted art theft. Boynton-Leigh makes plans to send Lavinia to a clinic for nervous disorders in France. A fire destroys Violet's surgery, and Mortimer is approached by the police after Agar is murdered and Lavinia disappears. Violet comes under suspicion of murder. A family portrayed in a Zoffany painting may hold the key to the mystery, and red candlesticks coupled with a trip to Yorkshire provide a further clue. When the case is over, Mortimer marries Violet.

Story: Working with his new wife, Violet Branscombe, at the Whitechapel People's Dispensary, Mortimer is drawn into the case of Solomons, a Ruthenian social revolutionary accused of the murder of General Ostyankin. Mortimer attends Solomons' trial, where the political implications of the case become clear to him. He notices the presence of a veiled lady among the crowd, and hears a story of false identities and unusual gold sovereigns. He sets out to track down a missing witness, and hears about a burned walking stick. A visit to Solomon in Wormwood Scrubs brings details of the high class of people using the brothel in which the General was murdered, and the goings-on there. Another murder is reported and Mortimer's investigations take him to a nursing home for syphilitics, and to a young girl who may have been taken, blindfolded, to the murder house. He begins to realise that evidence is being covered up at official levels. When the trial ends with a verdict of guilty and a sentence to hang, Mortimer's investigation becomes more urgent, and he begins to have suspicions about a card game that is serving as an alibi. Links to an assassination in Odessa begin to appear, but a trap laid at Nevill's Turkish Baths leads to Mortimer being arrested as a peeping tom and the abduction of his wife, while the public executioner is drawing ever closer to London.

Ruben discovers that Robert was born on the day that was said to be the date on which the Antichrist would appear, and that his subconscious is inhabited by the voices of history's great dictators, who have told him that something momentous is going to occur on his upcoming fourteenth birthday.

The town's Sherlockian society, The Master's Clients' monthly meeting is attended by Baker Street Irregular Vincent Christopher Smith, but ends in carnage. Having identified the creature, Steve sets out to destroy it before it destroys his family.

NOTE: As Steve Neal explains to his family about J.W. Dunne's research into time, his son Scott is described as "suddenly losing interest in his pal George" (P.123), a reference to George Pal, directo of the first film version of The Time Machine.

NOTE 2: J.N. Williamson was a Sherlockian, and his middle name was Neal, suggesting that Steve Neal is modelled in part upon himself.

At the village inn, Holmes learns of a furious altercation between the Captain and a friend he had met there. When he and Watson visit the Manor, they are told that the Captain is unusually tired and has retired to his bed, and yet they see the door of his study closing. Holmes summons Lestrade to the scene and they lie in wait outside the house. The solution, Holmes reveals, lies in the Captain's past, and an old smuggling case involving his first officer. Before they can bring the culprit to justice, however, the east wing is set ablaze.

A reference to the Celtic goddess Arianrhod has led to suspicions of an Irish republican connection. Watson suggests that he enter the motorcycle race that Cranshaw was participating in, as their cover for being on the island. They encounter Stamford, who is now a consulting surgeon at the island's hospital, on the ferry. After discovering the site of Cranshaw's disappearance, Holmes traces his footprints, which disappear in the ruins of an ancient chapel.

Watson waits in Baker Street for Holmes, missing for two days, who has been investigating the Monster of Marylebone, responsible for a string of gruesome murders, the victims all respectable working-men. Lestrade and Billy, leader of the Irregulars, bring news that he has been found, naked, strung up, and terribly injured, alongside a beheaded Irregular. Watson weeps. He and Lestrade continue to work on the murders as Holmes lays in hospital, and Watson decides to put all that has happened onto paper.

The first victim is a tobacconist, strung up and mutialated in his own shop. The second is a gentleman's clothier and chairman of a Bond Street civic society. Holmes is angered when the wife has the murder scene cleaned and tidied before he can view it. Peacham tells Watson that Holmes will be able to return home soon, and will eventually make a full recovery. Watson weeps. Nurse Masterson is assigned to care for Holmes at Baker Street. Holmes and Watson begin to get a picture of the second victim's character and family, and his dealings with the other merchants on Bond Street, but find themselves being warned off by one of the Bond Street Civic Association's thugs. They discover a connection between the two victims, but not in time to prevent a third and fourth murder.

Feeling awkward over the presence of Masterson at Baker Street, Watson takes a holiday in Cornwall, where he feels he is being followed, and finds himself held at gunpoint on his journey home, with rescue coming from an unexpected source. As Holmes is recovering, Masterson moves out of Baker Street, but Holmes believes her insights into the psychology of the murderer are useful, so she continues to work with him and Watson. Holmes believes that there is more than one murderer, and an arrest is made. But another man is murdered shortly after Holmes interrogates him. Another interview convinces Holmes that he now knows the killer's identity, but Mycroft complicates matters by suggesting a political link to the case. A kidnapping, a house fire, a journey to Ireland and a vengeful father bring the case to its close.

Young costermonger's assistant, Tommy arrives dramatically in Baker Street. He has been sent an invitation to a violin recital at the home of Lady Armstrong. Holmes recognises the boy's uncle as a former society burglar, and sets Watson to follow him, a task which leads him into St Giles, where he is attacked. A visit to Lady Armstrong results in an invitation to the recital, and to the Aurora Club, for Holmes and Watson. A Christmas message, purportedly from Holmes appears in the press. Mrs Hudson and Watson give Tommy lessons in etiquette. Watson buys Tommy's uncle some gloves. Lady Armstrong hires Holmes to investigate her husband's fiancée and her brother. She also tells him of a previous attempt to steal the "Blood of Punjab", a ruby she intends to wear at the recital. Tommy and his uncle spend Christmas Day at 221B. The following day a bomb is delivered to the Settlement House where they live. Holmes becomes more aware that someone is impersonating him, and when he comes under suspicion for the bombing, he goes undercover to draw the strands of the plot together, prevent a robbery, and save Tommy's life.
