Mycroft wants his brother Sherlock to investigate the murder of civil servant Andrew West and theft of the Bruce-Partington missile plans. Sherlock, however, prefers to assist Lestrade following a massive bomb blast. The sadistic bomber abducts a string of hostages, who will be released after Sherlock has solved a series of puzzles, including a twenty year old murder, an insurance scam and the alleged forgery of a long lost painting.

Did You Know?
The Museum curator's name is said to be Wenceslas, which Sherlock thinks is Czech. Wenceslas, however, is an English transliteration of the Czech name Vaclav. Additionally, Wenceslas/Vaclav is a first name, not a surname. The name was possibly chosen for its connection specifically to Bohemia, rather than the Czech Republic as a whole. See more
