NYPD detective Javier Abreu is delighted to have his weird English friend Sherlock Holmes on the case of robbery-victim Dr. Richard Mantlo's apparently missing wife, whom Sherlock finds slaughtered in a safe room she has installed secretly. Sherlock, recently out of drug rehab, makes the best of his sober companion, Doctor Joan Watson, hired by his wealthy London father, actually a disbarred surgeon whose people skills he can use. Sherlock quickly proves it's the work of a trophy-hunting serial killer, but finds his prime suspect the next victim.
