Madness and murder await you...
Arthur Conan Doyle, renowned creator of Sherlock Holmes, arrives in New York with his wife Louisa ready to begin his first American tour. While he prepares his lectures, Louise becomes mesmerised by the vibrant and dangerous city. Especially when a woman's corpse is found in a Bowery alley and Louisa is convinced from the artist's sketch in the newspaper that she'd seen the victim in the hotel.
Although Arthur is sceptical about her fantasies, when Louisa sprains her ankle and is forced to remain in the hotel she can't resist pursuing her intuitions. And when more bodies start appearing, she's convinced that she holds the key to the killings. With the help of the hotel detective and an ambitious female reporter, Louisa starts to piece together a story of madness, murder and depravity.
