London 1901. The city is in the grip of 'Monkey Man Mania'.

Intrepid explorer Drake Patterson has caused a media storm following his astonishing discovery of a frozen ancient man in the remote Himalayan mountains. This 'Primal Man' has been triumphantly transported back to England as proof of the missing link in evolutionary theory.

The upcoming auction of the specimen causes a stir amongst academics and the board of the British Museum. Whilst many are excited about bidding for this 'yeti', suspicions remain. The story of the find just doesn't add up - neither does the fact that no one is prepared to insure the beast.

Enter the great detective Sherlock Holmes and his loyal friend Dr Watson.

The fraud investigation takes a dark turn when it becomes one of murder, and Sherlock's powers of deduction and skill are once again put to the test in this exciting adventure.
