His Last Bow

Sherlock Holmes, His Last Bow Episode 8 of 8

"There's an east wind coming all the same, such a wind as never blew on England yet. It will be cold and bitter, Watson, and a good many of us may wither before its blast. But it's God's own wind none the less, and a cleaner, better, stronger land will lie in the sunshine when the storm has cleared."

Set in 1914, the great sleuth-cum-apiarist is asked to help England in her darkest hour.
