    • One day, the famous detective Sherlock Holmes had a visitor,
    • Dr. Huxtable, who asked him to help him to find one of his
    • students, Arthur who was missing. Dr. Huxtable was the
    • headmaster of a school for boys and Arthur was the Duke of
    • Holdernesse’s son, a very important and
    • rich person. The German teacher was
    • missing too. He took his bicycle with him.
    • Holmes and Watson went to the Dr
    • Hutable’s school where they met the
    • Duke and his secretary, Mr. James Wilder .
    Sherlock Holmes and the Duke's son
  • 7.
    • After considering a series of elements, Holmes said that the
    • boy and the teacher went across the moor, as confirmed by
    • the boy’s hat that one of the gardeners found in the moor.
    • The day after, Watson and Holmes walked across the moor to
    • look for the tracks of a bicycle. They only saw cow tracks. At
    • last they found some tracks of a bicycle but they were of a
    • different kind. Then, they found Mr. Heidegger’s corpse behind
    • a bush. Holmes and Watson visited the places around the
    • school too. So they went to the “Green Man Inn”. There, they
    • met Mr. Hayes, the owner .
  • 8.
    • Holmes visited the stables too, where he saw that
    • the horses had old shoes but new nails. Holmes
    • suspected Hayes to know everything about the
    • kidnapping. Then, they
    • saw Mr. Wilder coming
    • By bike at the Inn. He
    • looked scared. He left
    • His bicycle and went
    • away by horse. The
    • bike’s tyre had the
    • same track they saw
    • in the moor, so they
    • suspected Mr. Wilder too.
  • 9.
    • Then Holmes went to the Duke’s. He told him that Wilder was
    • his illegitimate son and that he had kidnapped Arthur because
    • he wanted to become the new Duke, while Mr. Hayes helped
    • him and killed the German teacher. The Duke knew that
    • Arthur was at the “Green Man Inn” while James was going to
    • Australia as he did not want to be arrested. Holmes asked the
    • Duke why Hayes’s horse made cow tracks in the mud and he
    • showed the detective a pair of old horse shoes which looked like
    • cow’s foot. Then Holmes took his cheque as a reward
    • for his work, also because he despised the
    • Duke for his behavior as he didn’t help
    • Arthur when James told him that he had
    • kidnapped him.
  • 10.
    • The teenager John Watson, decided to become a doctor,
    • meets the young Sherlock Holmes, well regarded by teachers. A group of five
    • rich and successful British men are being targeted by a mysterious figure with
    • a cloak, which uses a blowgun to shoot small spines on the neck of his
    • victims. The plugs, wet with poison, push them to suicide. Holmes suspects
    • the incident and he, his girlfriend Elizabeth and Watson begin to
    • investigate. Clue after clue they come across different objects and a large
    • Egyptian pyramid. They go inside and discover a set to perform a
    • ceremony in which young girls are sacrificed. On the banks of the Thames,
    • the members of the cult hit and kill Elizabeth with the gun and then
    • engage in a fight with Holmes: Sherlock prevails over his opponents who
    • disappeared in the icy water, and can only give a last farewell to his
    • beloved that dies between his arms.
