The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes
The Looting of the Specie Room
The R.M.S Oceanic is attempting the fastest-ever transatlantic crossing. In the ship’s specie room (the strong room at the bottom of the ship’s hold), there is a valuable consignment of gold bullion. When that disappears, not only is the transatlantic record in jeopardy, but so is the life of the purser, Mr. Horrocks.
