The Pullman Papers


Doctor Dietler, the famous theorist, has just been found dead in his compartment onboard a Pullman train. He was travelling in the company of his nurse, Maria Zinden, son, Franck and secretary, Federick Von Heissen, en route for London where he was to meet the Director of the Royal Institution of Great Britain. Doctor Dietler had with him a folder containing evidence, which proves, so he claims, what has become know to scientists throughout the world as the Grand Challenge. This is the concept that all the forces in nature are unified, and if proven would provide unlimited power from the atoms themselves. Naturally this information would be very valuable to any number of persons and it is feared that an attempt has been made to steal these papers, which are now missing. In the most complex case yet will Sherlock Holmes be able to recover the missing papers?
