What if the most celebrated consulting detective in the world, at the height of his powers in 1897, were put on the trail of the fabled lost Crown of Scotland? What if the most potent symbol of Scottish sovereignty was stolen, members of the British Royal Family abducted, threats made against the Queen and a campaign of terror planned by separatists aided by a Great Power? What if Holmes and Watson tracked a conspiracy against the Union by some of the highest in the land? And what if a war of cataclysmic proportions might set Europe ablaze and destroy the Empire if they failed to uncover the plot? The Scottish Question - Sons of the Thistle tells that story.

Who's helping the Scots? Why? Who wants to maintain the status quo? Who side are you on? Now that Scotland has actually Voted the story is even interesting.
