Sherlock Holmes refuses to deal with domestic murders, so his elder brother, Mycroft, accepts the intellectual challenge posed to them by a young barrister, Edward Marshall Hall, of a death in Hampstead. Captain Septimus Hall died of arsenical poisoning and the police have arrested his housekeeper, Mrs. Diana Tuttle, but, as Mycroft investigates, many of the strands in the mystery lead to the Vale of Heath Lakeside Spa and Sporting Rooms nearby. Unfortunately, this establishment is frequented by influential patrons and Mycroft is summoned to a weekend at Sandringham where two attempts are made upon his life. To add to the confusion, Mycroft is also engaged in diplomacy for the government concerning the succession in a German principality and the murder and this foreign affair seem to intertwine. The intellect of Mycroft Holmes, the judicial questioning by Marshall Hall and investigations by a Russian princess eventually solve the Hampstead poisonings.
