Holmes and Watson are called upon to investigate the deaths of 'Little Alfie's' Aunt and Uncle. The police believe they have been murdered and Flora Smith, the daughter of the deceased couple has been arrested for the murder. However, on further investigation involving an incognito visit to the gasworks where Watson becomes a touch light fingered, Holmes believes that there is another explanation.
Little Alfie of the Baker Street Irregulars seeks the help of Holmes and Watson as his cousin Flora has been arrested and accused of a double murder. The investigation gets underway with a trip to the scene of the crime.
Holmes is suspicious and, together with Watson, he travels incognito to The Imperial Gasworks. Their visit is both informative and productive involving a little deception and some slight of hand by Watson to obtain some Rattle-Jacks.
The postmortem confirms Holmes suspicions but he now has to gather sufficient evidence to convince the Coroner and the jury that this is not in fact a case of murder.
