Even Sherlock Holmes needs help sometimes...

Londoners are turning out for the unveiling of the Malabar Rose-a rare and remarkable ruby-and the British debut of the Great Salmanazar. A magician and illusionist extraordinaire, Salmanazar is the talk of Europe-since whenever he appears abroad, daring thefts of famous jewelry coincide with his performances.

But after a special representative of the Home Secretary begs Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson to help guard the Malabar Rose, it vanishes under the most baffling of circumstances. Suspecting that the Great Salmanazar has used smoke-and-mirrors on Scotland Yard, the formidable Mrs. Hudson is called upon to give a lesson in criminal deduction to that most logical of minds-the great Sherlock Holmes.

Londoners are braving the December snows to see two great events scheduled for the same day: the unveiling of the Malabar Rose, a rare and remarkable ruby, and the first appearance in Britain of the Great Salmanazar. A magician and illusionist extraordinaire, Salmanazar is the talk of Europe - especially since whenever he appears abroad, daring thefts of famous jewelry coincide with his performances.
But when a special representative of the Home Secretary calls at Baker Street to beg Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson to help guard the Malabar Rose, Mrs. Hudson suspects that the Great Salmanazar is about to use smoke and mirrors on Scotland Yard. When the Malabar Rose vanishes under the most baffling of circumstances, larceny is clearly afoot, and the formidable Mrs. Hudson is called upon to give a lesson in criminal deduction to that most logical of minds - the great Sherlock Holmes.
