Without a case to occupy his restive mind, Holmes breaks his ennui by agreeing to investigate the story of an amateur cartographer who stayed overnight at the rented lodge of another map enthusiast but awoke in the morning to find his host and servants mysteriously missing. Holmes finds he has a rival in the ambitious and publicity conscious Inspector Barnes, who sees himself as The Great Detective's peer and is reluctant to share information with him. When the Spaniard is found bludgeoned to death, Barnes suspects his mulatto servant, but Holmes directs his efforts in a different direction. Written by Gabe Taverney (duke1029@aol.com)

A Bit of a Hodgepodge
11 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An episode that is divided into two parts in the literary form. It starts with a Mr. Eccles who has been invited to the signature lodge. He spends an evening with a group of nervous people who get even more nervous when they receive a message. When Eccles awakens, everyone has disappeared. The house is empty. Now a series of events ensues, involving a vicious murderer and his henchmen. In the mix, however, is revenge for the death of a loved one and a plot to exact that revenge. It leads to a daring effort to infiltrate the evil man's domain and Holmes and Watson getting in a bit deep. I like this episode because of the complexity of the network that develops from the actions of the villain. It is much more intense than many of the stories and moves us along with great pacing.
