Hiding a long buried secret induces pity and sorrow in the great Sherlock Holmes.

of the Veiled Lodger. A long-buried secret induces pity and sorrow in the great detective. James Nickerson reads a tragic story of love and revenge.

Taken from 'The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes' published in 1927 some years after Holmes' death at the hands of Moriarty, this a story from the latter period of Sherlock Holmes mysteries. We find Holmes in a somber pensive mood and almost moved to emotion (something we rarely see) by the testament of a brave and tragic woman.

Holmes and Watson learn the truth about the death of a lion tamer many years before, which left his wife horribly mutilated and hidden behind a veil. A tale of abuse and revenge fuelled by the ultimate betrayal of a lover and the physical and emotional scars it has left behind.

The reader is James Nickerson.
