Reggie and Nigel Heath are relatively close in age, but worlds apart in personality. The older of the two brothers, Reggie is a successful attorney with charisma to spare. Nigel has always struggled to step out of his shadow. When Reggie leases space in an office building on London's Baker Street, he finds that the paperwork comes with an odd stipulation: his firm must receive and respond with a standard reply to letters sent to Sherlock Holmes (who famously occupied the same address). When Nigel, newly suspended from practicing law and relegated to clerk duties, becomes intrigued by one of the 'Dear Sherlock' notes, he disappears quite suddenly, leaving a dead body in his wake, and Reggie must hop the next flight to Los Angeles to uncover the truth. Hot on his heels is his sometime lover, Laura - a quick-witted stage actress who's captured the hearts of both brothers.
