Story: After leaving his club, De Montfort is seen running screaming through the streets and later found battered to death in Grosvenor Square. Dr John Silence calls at Baker Street and tells Holmes and Watson of Elsa Simcox, the young daughter of a former patient, whose strange behaviour suggests some kind of possession. Holmes dismisses Silence's statement that the entity has asked for him by name, along with De Montfort and the Laird of Boleskine, but when he reads of De Montfort's death he decides to make contact with Gregson. After viewing the body and site of death he consults with Langdale Pike, from whom he learns that De Montfort was a member of the Golden Dawn, and that the Laird of Boleskine is Alisteir Crowley.
