Sherlock Holmes, one of the great literary minds of all time, is 93-years-old in this novel, and starting to lose his powers of deduction. He recounts a trip made to Japan shortly after WW II, and is trying to teach the maid's young son the art of beekeeping. There are still important mysteries to be solved though, and Holmes struggles with his frailty and declining mental health to find the answers. A poignant tale featuring one literature's best loved characters.
