Sherlock Holmes (Eille Norwood) and Doctor Watson (Hubert Willis) actually came to the country for some rest and relaxation, but then they stumble upon a murder case - three siblings, sitting around a table as if playing cards ... and yet dead, killed by some undeterminable source. Everybody is baffled, but Holmes is quick to determine the culprit: Mortimer Tregennis (Harvey Braban), the brother of the three deceased who has fallen out with them long ago but has paid them a visit at the night of the murder, later left their place in a hurry. But before Holmes manages to have Tregennis arrested, Tregennis dies to, just the same way as his siblings ...

Exotic gravel at the scene of the crime leads Holmes to Dr Sterndale (Hugh Buckler), a lionhunter who has returned to his hometown to trade in all sorts exotic goods. Holmes is quick to make him confess to the murder of Tregennis, but not the other three, who according to Sterndale were indeed killed by Tregennis, as Holmes had suspected. And Sterndale even has Tregennis' signed confession to prove this ...

The actual story unfolded as follows: A few days ago, Tregennis bought some exotic poison from Sterndale, and Sterndale thought little of it - until he learned that Tregennis's three siblings were killed - and judging from the circumstances of their deaths, the killer must have used Sterndale's poison, which pretty much made Tregennis the only logical suspect. Thing is, Sterndale was in love with Tregennis' sister, and even though she never loved him back, he felt the need to avenge her and kill Tregennis just the way he killed his siblings - but not before getting a signed confession out of him.

Holmes cannot actually condone this act of self justice but sees that Sterndale is no killer, so he lets him off the hook and tells the police that Tregennis committed suicide - and his signed confession ties up the case quite nicely.


An silent Sherlock Holmes-feature that's a bit on the boring side - there is little in terms of action or suspense to carry the film, it's little more than a series of deductions, which isn't really all that entertaining. At least Eille Norwood is a pretty good Sherlock Holmes though.
