(Sorry this has been so delayed. The ongoing serial killer case has been taking up a lot of our time. Finally got a chance to finish up and post this.)
Back from Prague and Sherlock’s straight into it. Two cases going at once, so I’ll break them down a bit.
For one, someone came to us suspecting somebody was poisoning his mother, and the other featured a skilled thief…
First, the poisoned mother, or as I call it – the Hemlocked Housewife – despite Sherlock saying she’s widowed. She still cares for the house, Sherlock!
Since we had been away, the details had been left in a letter with a plea that we contact him immediately, as each day could mean the end. The police had been less than helpful so far, though in their defence there isn’t much you can do until an actual threat had been made and at this stage there wasn’t as much as a note stating any intent. From the information in the letter it seemed, sadly, that this was perhaps from the imagination of the housewife alone… but Sherlock stood to her defence.
