Someone is killing sheep in the Cotswolds. Or something. As Holmes and Watson arrive in the tranquility of a little village of shepherds and farmers to enjoy a few restful days in the idyllic countryside, strange things start to occur. While Holmes locks himself in his hotel room, consumed by depression, Watson is left to explore the surroundings on his own, acquainting himself with both the local shepherding community, the eccentric vicar, and the local folklore concerning a mysterious werewolf.
It isn't long before the murderer directs his attention to other prey than sheep, and Holmes is forced out of his ennui into a world of fog-enshrouded moors, wild men, pitchforks, and a big bad wolf.
This volume also includes four shorter stories in the vein of Conan Doyle: "The Adventure of the Velvet Lampshade", "The Adventure of the Missing Mudlark", "The Adventure of the Forking Paths", and "The Adventure of the One-Armed Pugilist".
