When Jayne Wilson’s mother is accused of murder, Jayne
and Gemma have to eliminate the impossible to reveal the
Legendary stage and movie star Sir Nigel Bellingham
arrives on Cape Cod to star in a stage production of The
Hound of the Baskervilles put on by the West London
Theater Festival. When Sir Nigel, some of the cast, and
the director visit the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop at 222
Baker Street, Gemma Doyle realizes that Sir Nigel is not
at all suited to the role. He is long past his prime and
an old drunk to boot. The cast, in particular the much
younger actor who previously had the role, are not happy,
but the show must go on.
Before the play opens, Leslie Wilson, mother of Gemma’s
best friend Jayne, arranges a fundraising afternoon tea
to be catered by Mrs. Hudson’s Tea Room. The tea is a
huge success, but when it’s time to leave, Sir Nigel has
gone missing—only to be found at the bottom of the rocky
cliff, dead. Along with the dead body, Gemma finds
evidence incriminating Leslie Wilson. When the police, in
the presence of handsome detective Ryan Ashburton and
suspicious detective Louise Estrada, focus their
attention on Leslie despite the numerous other suspects,
the game is once again afoot and it’s again up to the
highly perceptive Gemma and the ever-confused but loyal
Jayne to clear Jayne’s mother’s name.
