Our story begins when Violet Hunter seeks the guidance of the great Sherlock Holmes. You see, she's just been offered a rather peculiar governess job, complete with a laundry list of bizarre conditions. One of those conditions? She's required to chop off her locks and sport a rather short hairstyle. But here's the kicker – the pay is exorbitantly high at £120. With such a tempting offer, Hunter decides to take the plunge and accept the job, but Holmes, ever the sharp detective, reminds her that he's there for her if she ever finds herself in a bind.
As the story unfolds, strange happenings plague Hunter. It starts with the discovery of an isolated section of the house that's been sealed off from the rest of the world. Something isn't quite right here. Feeling a sense of apprehension, Hunter reaches out to Holmes for help. And, as always, he's ready to dive into the mystery headfirst.
As Holmes delves deeper into the enigma, he unravels a startling truth – someone had been held captive in that sealed-off wing of the house. But when Holmes, accompanied by his trusty sidekick Watson and our resilient protagonist Hunter, enter the wing, it's eerily vacant. Who or what was once imprisoned there? Where did they vanish to? The suspense is practically tangible.
As if things couldn't get more thrilling, our trio finds themselves accused of setting the captive free. But hold on just a minute. The captive turns out to be none other than the daughter of Hunter's employer. And guess what? She's alive, well, and has recently tied the knot with her one true love. Talk about a plot twist!

With Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle's exceptional narration, The Adventure of the Copper Beeches will transport you to a world where secrets lurk around every corner and nothing is as it seems. Listen closely, my friends, for the game is afoot.
