TEA TIME at Baker Street: "The Adventure of the Illustrious Client"

Holmes & Watson continue to save the day!  

THIS WEEK: "The Adventure of the Illustrious Client"
Sir James Damery comes to see Holmes and Watson about his illustrious client's problem (the client's identity is never revealed to the reader, although Watson finds out at the end of the story; it is heavily implied to be King Edward VII). General de Merville's young daughter Violet has fallen in love with the roguish and sadistic Austrian Baron Adelbert Gruner, who Damery and Holmes are convinced is a shameless philanderer and a murderer.

The victim was his last wife, of whose murder he was acquitted owing to a legal technicality and a witness's untimely death. She met her end in the Splügen Pass. Holmes also finds out that the Baron has expensive tastes and is a collector and a recognised authority on Chinese pottery.Holmes's first step is to see Gruner, who is amused to see Holmes trying to "play a hand with no cards in it".

Da5id Abbot, Savannah Blindside, Kayden Oconnell, and Caledonia Skytower present the adventure, live on stream from the Seanchai Fireside Room.
