Mr. Robert Ferguson has a rather delicate problem. He is estranged from his wife and he doesn’t understand why. For all appearances and purposes, it appears that his wife is behaving strangely by biting her baby’s neck and drinking blood. She has also been found beating his son of first marriage in a storm of rage. What could be the cause of her apparent madness? Mr. Ferguson, convinced that she is a vampire, separates her from their baby and decides to consult Sherlock Holmes about it. Sherlock Holmes, however, has other ideas and quickly rejects supernatural explanations.
