SUNDAY, April 27th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street!

Kayden, Corwyn, and Cale start a four part series of the second novel of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's featuring the great Holmesian adventures, published in 1890: THE SIGN OF FOUR. Written right after "A Study In Scarlet," which introduced Holmes, the author went on to publish 56 short stories and 4 novels of Holmesian adventures.

The story is set in 1888. The Sign of the Four has a complex plot involving service in East India Company, India, the Indian Rebellion of 1857, a stolen treasure, and a secret pact among four convicts ("the Four" of the title) and two corrupt prison guards. It presents the detective's drug habit and humanizes him in a way that had not been done in the preceding novel A Study in Scarlet (1887). It also introduces Doctor Watson's future wife, Mary Morstan.
