A blackmailer uses tapes of underage girls to get money from their fathers. When Holmes witnesses the blackmailer's murder, it becomes a race to find out who his accomplice is and prevent the videos from being released on the Internet.

The plot extends far beyond the opening events which briefly encapsulate an entire short story written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In the 1904 story titled "Charles Augustus Milverton," Holmes and Watson break into a blackmailer's home to recover incriminating material, but must hide when Milverton returns. He is confronted by a masked shooter, who describes the devastation Milverton wrought in her life before she kills him. Holmes refuses to help find Milverton's well-justified murderer, and the short story ends as Holmes and Watson quietly discover her identity. See more

My sponsor was out of town, so I reached out to Alfredo. I just needed somebody to talk to, but then he told me about you. He said that you might be able to help?
I have a particular disdain for blackmailers. They are, in some respects, more despicable to me than even murderers. Ms. Watson and I will find the person who has been targeting you. We will also find their accomplice. We shall then destroy every trace of this vile recording.
