A collection of public domain characters (inc Miss Haversham and Elizabeth Bennett) gather together but they have no idea why they have all been invited. Professor Moriarty's butler, Moran, tells them that his employer has information on each of them which would swiftly result in them all being arrested by the Fictional Investigation Bureau. Moran says that they can help each other by relieving Moriarty of any proof of their guilty secrets before the police arrive to arrest him in thirty minutes. When the lights go off Moriarty is left for dead on the floor, a stake through his back. Everyone blames each other, no one knows who the murderer is and they have less than thirty minutes before Inspector Lestrade arrives in which to identify the murderer, and find the front door key. Who is the murderer? Why has the corpse moved? Why does Moran know so much? And just why does the maid seem to know all the suspects?
