Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) has been commissioned by Roland Carstairs to safeguard the fabulous Star of Rhodesia diamond that is owned by his mother, Lady Carstairs. Holmes is convinced that the diamond will be stolen on the train trip from Edinburgh to London; so he switches the real diamond with a fake. Unfortunately Roland is murdered, and the thieves make off with the fake. Aided by Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce), and Inspector Lestrade (Dennis Hoey), Holmes tracks down the murderer and discovers the involvement of Colonel Sebastian Moran, the henchman of his nemesis Professor Moriarty.
