Arthur Cadogan West, a young government clerk, is found dead by the railway tracks near Aldgate. On his body Holmes' brother Mycroft finds some secret submarine plans - three pages of which seem to be missing. These pages alone, in the wrong hands, could be used to build a Bruce-Partington submarine that would pose a threat to Britain.

Cadogan West's head has been crushed, but it looks like there has been no robbery - was the assailant after the plans? On further investigation, with no evident signs of a struggle or violence inside any of the railway coaches or track-side, our heroes realise that this is definitely no straight-forward mugging. It is clear that the young man planned to sell the plans for profit, but how was he killed, and why, exactly?

Lucky that Holmes, Watson, Mycroft and friends are on the case - rest assured they'll find their reason - and their man. Download and start listening now!

About the Author
Author Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
