Join the famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusty colleague, Doctor Watson, in the many problems, dilemmas, and mysteries they encounter while trying to apprehend the infamous Professor Moriarty and other fiendish felons.

Use your deductive powers to right wrongs and prevent crimes, while you deal with the esteemed Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard, Mrs. Hudson, Holmes’ household manager, and all the other characters you’ll encounter in and around 221B Baker Street.

 
While working on a case Holmes receives vital information from a mysterious source in the form of a note. The note reads: Go to the Dunwick Bank. Inside each of the safety deposit boxes listed below you will find a clue to the crime you are presently investigating. BOX NUMBERS : 20, 80, 76, 19, 23, 92, 88 and ? I have omitted to tell you the number of the last box, but I'm sure a great detective such as yourself will know where to look. Holmes read the note then passed it to Doctor Watson. "Most inconvenient," muttered Watson." Now we'll have to open every single safety deposit box to find the last clue." "Not so, Watson." replied Holmes." I know exactly which box to open. Come along Watson, let's hurry to the Dunwick Bank." What was the number of the last safety deposit box?
