He taught him the finer points...of murder!

Outside of the refined halls of Edinburgh University, a young Arthur Conan Doyle is learning his first lessons... in murder.

In 1878, when Mr. Doyle meets the brilliant teacher, Dr. Bell, he is drawn away from his studies into a new world of crime investigation. As the pair assists local police in solving their most gruesome cases, Doyle becomes fascinated with Bell's uncanny talent for outthinking seasoned detectives and outwitting the most clever criminals.

However, one particularly vicious cat-and-mouse game has a different ending. Doyle finds his life completely changed... and even Dr. Bell's agile mind cannot predict how this story will end!
