Thornton recognizes the dogs intelligence and strength. He steps in to claim the dog and nurses Buck back to health.

In the debut of literature's most famous sleuth, a dead man is discovered in a bloodstained room in Brixton.

With this investigation begins the partnership of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Their search for the murderer uncovers a story of love and revenge-and heralds a franchise of detective mysteries starring the formidable Holmes.
