This page of the Sherlock Holmes Chapter One game guide provides a walkthrough of the quest A Mother's Love. We described the steps you need to take to access the family home and then enter Sherlock's room.
Finding the home
You'll find Sherlock's family home in the Grand Saray district. It's located right next to the main road. It stands out from other buildings due to its red walls and the tall brick fence. We marked its location on the screenshot above to make it easier for you to find
You'll see a letter from your brother at the front door. You can't skip this step, only when you pick it up will you be able to go inside.
The first attempt to break down the door has no chance to succeed. Jon will give you a little lecture about the barriers in your head, etc. However, Sherlock will think it best to search the garden.
To the left of the property you will see a large, illuminated gazebo. Walk up to it to investigate the objects that are lying there.
Once you enter the gazebo, you'll noitce a mannequin. It's time to focus on it and take note of exactly 4 elements. Pay attention to:
- the mannequin's face
- the sword
- the handcuffs
- the purse.
Footprints at the entrance
Before you can enter your home, you need to use concentration mode. This will enable you to see clues that were previously invisible. Examine them all for the door to open.
Footprints in the home
When you enter the home, you will see many elements that you can examine, such as an umbrella or notes. Use concentration mode to make it easier to find all of them.
After examining the lobby, mark the new task in the journal (pictured in the screenshot above). This will give you access to more clues you need to inspect.
Only when you have discovered them all will you be able to re-construe the flashback. It will push the plot forward and allow you to enter Sherlock's room.
Once you begin the flashback, you'll need to correctly arrange all the elements. Start with the door. Near it, there should be an older man with a beard and an umbrella in his hand.
Approach the area with the suitcases. That's where you put the man pointing his finger at the stairs.
Mycroft is pointing at Sherlock and their mother. They're standing by the stairs. An important element is Jon, who is playing in a pram right next to his friend and mother.
