In Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Adventure of the Gloria Scott,” Sherlock Holmes relates the circumstances of his first case to Dr. Watson in their comfortable rooms at Baker Street. Visiting his university friend Victor Trevor at his father’s estate in Norfolk, Holmes touches a sore spot when he deduces that Trevor’s father was once connected with someone with the initials “J.A.”, whom he wants now to forget. Soon after, a belligerent drifter appears and is inexplicably given the job of butler to the estate. When Trevor dies soon after, Holmes must try and untangle the events leading to Trevor’s death. Featuring original illustrations by Sidney Paget.
