As a medical student in Edinburgh, Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle studied under pioneering forensic scientist Dr. Joseph Bell. In this fictional adventure, David Pirie pairs Bell and Doyle to investigate crime in the Victorian underworld. Beginning his first medical practice, Doyle is puzzled by his patient Heather Grace's strange eye condition. Heather's parents died tragically several years earlier, and she's upset by visions of a phantom cyclist who vanishes as soon as he is followed. When Doyle gets embroiled in more dangerous events, he asks for Bell's intervention, but the veteran doctor is more interested in the patient's eyes—and the solitary cyclist—than the murder of a rich Spanish businessman.
