Department S: Death on Reflection

Location: Bond Street, London, England
Date: January 18th

A mirror at an auction sparks a bidding war. Sir Curtis, who is in attendance at the auction, calls the Department to investigate why a relatively inconsequential mirror would sell for £9,000 -- and why the man who bought the mirror was murdered shortly after the purchase.
