Detective Matthew Ransom’s (Michael T. Weiss) partner, John Traveller, is convicted of killing his wife and her lover. Matthew tries to help his friend out, but the only clues on hand are a wig, a card with “V.V 341” and the word “Rache” written in blood. John suggests Matthew heads home and searches his library of Sherlock Holmes mysteries. But Matthew finds John’s daughter, Jude, much more attractive than he remembered. Soon there is a break in the case, and fingers start pointing at a most unlikely suspect–Jude!
