Charles Frohman is a theater business mogul with a syndicate that stages productions up and down the eastern seaboard of the United States and across the Atlantic to England and Europe at the turn of the twentieth century. A great deal of Frohman's success is due to his association and friendship with one man – the prominent actor of his time, William Hooker Gillette.

Actor, playwright, director, and stage set designer, William Gillette, has thrilled the American public with his introduction of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous sleuth, Sherlock Holmes.  When Gillette decides to semi retire, he throws himself into building a permanent home on the cliffs high above the Connecticut River in Haddam, Connecticut. As the project nears its completion in early March of 1917, he invites his old friend to be the first guest in his new home.  Charles Frohman wastes no time packing and heads up the coast, from New York City, to spend what he hopes will be a relaxing reunion with his old collaborator.

Their peaceful morning coffee is shattered when a dead man is discovered in an impossible spot!  The local police, already stymied by a previous mysterious murder and robbery on the river, have little time to spend on the enigma.

So it’s up to William Gillette to take up the mantle of his stage persona, Sherlock Holmes.  With his best friend by his side and his ever faithful Japanese servant, Ozaki, in the shadows, they risk their lives in an effort to solve the mystery with shreds of evidence.
