Sherlock Holmes, now 93, lives in a remote Sussex farmhouse with
his housekeeper and her young son. He tends to his bees, writes in

But in the twilight of his life, as people continue to look to him for answers, Holmes revisits a case that may provide him with answers of his own to questions he didn't even know he was asking-about life, about love, and about the limits of the mind's ability to know.
