The answers seem to lie in a message hidden in a diagram that looks like a spider's web. But solving one puzzle only leads to an even more urgent question: What has all this got to do with a plot to blow up an American warship?

To unravel the strands that entangle him, Sherlock must brave terrors greater than any he has faced before.
