The Three Locks

1887, Indian Summer broils London and Cambridge.  A mysterious locked and impregnable box arrives for Watson with a secret from his past. A famous escape artist/conjurer burns to a crisp onstage, and the beautiful daughter of a Cambridge don vanishes after her lookalike doll is found dismembered in the Jesus Lock on the River Cam. Holmes and Watson tangle with prestidigitators and priests, scientists and scheming sisters as they risk life and limb to solve the murders.
