Bringing together the first three mysteries of the series, this box set sees playwright and amateur sleuth Maltravers faced against increasingly baffling disappearances, thefts and murders.
From a stolen religious relic to a murder mystery based on a buried Sherlock Holmes manuscript by Conan Doyle himself, Maltravers and his partner Tess Davy must act quickly to stop the mastermind criminals behind these fiendishly difficult puzzles.
