The Adven­ture of the Pecu­liar Pro­to­cols takes place in 1905, where Sher­lock Holmes, turn­ing fifty and con­tem­plat­ing retire­ment, is sum­moned instead by his broth­er Mycroft on behalf of the For­eign Office, to inves­ti­gate the alleged min­utes of a secret meet­ing of Jews schem­ing to take over the world. As pre­pos­ter­ous as the plot first seems, Holmes and the faith­ful Dr. Wat­son soon find them­selves enmeshed in a far more sin­is­ter and com­plex con­spir­a­cy that takes them into the heart of restive Tsarist Rus­sia in the com­pa­ny of a beau­ti­ful and mys­te­ri­ous woman. With mutiny aboard the bat­tle­ship Potemkin, and defeat at the hands of the Japan­ese, Rus­sia is on the brink of rev­o­lu­tion. What in fact are the Pro­to­cols of the Elders of Zion and will Holmes and Wat­son make it out of Rus­sia alive?
