SUNDAY, February 28th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street!

Tea Time continues its sojourn at Crazy Eights on LEA 9 with with the next adventure from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's collection "The Return of Sherlock Holmes"

THIS WEEK: The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist


Holmes is contacted by Miss Violet Smith of Farnham, Surrey about an unusual turn in her and her mother’s lives. Violet’s father has recently died, and left his wife and daughter rather poor. However, a notice appeared in the newspaper not much later inquiring as to their whereabouts. Answering it, they met Mr. Carruthers and Mr. Woodley, the former a pleasant enough man, but the latter a bully. They had come from South Africa, where they had known Violet’s uncle Ralph Smith, who had now also died in poverty and apparently wanted to see that his relatives were provided for. This struck Violet as odd, since she and her family had not heard a word from Uncle Ralph since he'd gone to South Africa 25 years ago. Carruthers and Woodley explained that before dying, Ralph had heard of his brother’s death and felt responsible for his survivors’ welfare.


Yet, Violet rejects the unwanted attentions of Woodley and she finds she is being followed.  Despite her tremendous fortitude, she is relying on Sherlock Holmes to help her understand the profound peril that seems to be lurking about her.
