Sherlock Holmes is missing, and the streets of London are awash with crime. Who will save the day? The Baker Street Irregulars—a gang of street kids hired by Sherlock himself to help solve cases. Now they must band together to prove that Sherlock is not dead, but also to find the mayor’s missing daughter, untangle a murder mystery, and face the masked criminal mastermind behind it all. Can a group of orphans, pickpockets, inventors and artists rescue the people of London? The game is afoot!
