The monotony of thick smog-shrouded London is broken by a sudden visit from Holmes’s brother Mycroft. He has come about some missing, secret submarine plans. Seven of the ten pages — three are still missing — were found with Arthur Cadogan West’s body. He was a young clerk in a government office at Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, whose body was found next to the Underground tracks near the Aldgate tube station, his head crushed. The three missing pages by themselves could enable one of Britain’s enemies to build a Bruce-Partington submarine. Holmes must solve the mystery and regain possession of the missing plans for the safety of the Empire.
