THE GREAT DETECTIVE SHERLOCK HOLMES  #16 The Dancing Code
Watson's good friend Dr. Hilton Cubitt had accepted a post at a new hospital in Hong Kong. On the long sea voyage, he met a beautiful Chinese American girl named Elsie. Cubitt fell madly in love with Elsie and proposed to her before their steamship reached Hong Kong, but Elsie would only agree to the marriage on the promise that Cubitt would never ask about her past. 

The couple was happily married for a year until a letter arrived from New York out of the blue. Elsie was thrown into a constant state of anxiety after reading the letter. And when some mysterious dancing stick figure drawings were discovered on the windowsill, the door and letterbox of Cubiti's home, Elsie was overwhelmed with extreme horror! Why were those stick figures so frightening? What secrets were hiding behind those drawings?

Holmes and Watson were in Hong Kong for holiday, so they had volunteered their investigation service to Cubitt. Just when our great detective was about to crack the dancing stick figure code, a fatal shooting happened at Cubiti's home! It turned out that behind the dancing stick figures hid a secret past entwined in love and hate!

華生的好友丘比特醫生到香港赴任時,在郵輪上結識了美麗的華裔女子艾爾茜。在他的熱烈追求下,艾爾茜答允了他的求婚,但條件是不可以追問她的過去。

福爾摩斯和華生剛好來到香港旅遊,於是毛遂自薦進行調查。然而,正當大偵探即將破解火柴人密碼之際,丘比特家中卻發了槍擊血案!火柴人的背後,原來暗藏着一段愛恨交纏的過去!
