Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Case of the Mystified Murderess
About Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Case of the Mystified Murderess
About this game
An unexpected guest interrupted my morning routine, speaking in impassioned tones about an intriguing murder. An unassuming woman has been charged with the death of a scoundrel, a fortune-squandering bounder. True, she was found over the body, pistol in hand but there are other avenues in this case that even the Yard has refused to set foot upon – especially when they wind into darker places of London’s society. I have the feeling that there is more to the case than meets the eye.
