This is the second book in a series called Young Sherlock Holmes.
Sherlock knows that his American tutor is hiding a dark secret, but he never could have guessed what is was until he descovered it for himself. As it turns out his tutor is a convicted murderer, and had been hanged for his crime. So how could it be that this man was his tutor? In order to find out the truth, Sherlock travels to America, but things get complicated as no one is willing to tell the truth, and Herlock knows it is up to him to find the answers.
