Monday morning, the 1st of December, 1895. Location: 221b Baker Street, London, aka the home of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Long time landlady Mrs. Edith Hudson asks, “Sherlock, have you seen my thimble anywhere?” This simple and most mundane question casts the residents of Baker Street down a rabbit hole of adventure.

Does she have what it takes to solve the case of The Vanishing Thimble?
