Conan Doyle is on the run from his own fame. Sherlock Holmes’s popularity has taken over his life and he sees only one solution – to kill him off. To do this, Doyle flees to Switzerland, to a picturesque village nestled beneath the imposing Reichenbach Falls. There he hopes to find anonymity, but even in this beautiful rural setting, peace eludes him when he finds himself drawn into the mystery surrounding the death of a fellow tourist. Who killed Peter Brown? What does the local priest know that he’s not saying? What effect is Holmes having on Doyle’s psychological state, and is it malignant? Soon he finds the finger of suspicion is pointing at him, as the locals unite behind the troubled Holloway, who believes he is the embodiment of Sherlock Holmes.
