Eddie Maguire’s Sherlock Holmes and the Bolshevik Plot follows on immediately after the conclusion of Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Mission, in which our two heroes find themselves in Italy where it is clear that the future of Europe and its leaders are in imminent danger from a shadowy mastermind.
