The Crimes of Dr. Watson: An Interactive Sherlock Holmes Mystery

John H. Watson, M.D., Edited and with an Introduction by, Duane Swierczynski

Quirk Books is excited to announce the discovery of a never-before-published adventure from the pen of Dr. John Watson, steadfast companion of the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes. As the tale opens, we discover that Holmes has vanished--and Watson has been framed for a grisly murder! Writing from a damp cell in Coldbath Fields penitentiary, the falsely convicted prisoner recounts the events leading to his arrest . . . and provides twelve removable, facsimile clues that point to the true culprit. Among them are:

* An article torn from a newspaper in California
* A puzzling manuscript ripped into several pieces
* A catalog of Victorian medicines and marital aids
* Plus a telegram, an arrest report, an empty matchbook, and much more

It's up to you to sift through the clues and solve the thrilling whodunit. When you think you've identified the culprit, slice open the final signature of the book (sealed at the printer) to read the remainder of the story. With beautiful Victorian-style illustrations, The Crimes of Dr. Watson will appeal to mystery lovers of all ages.

JOHN H. WATSON, M.D., authored dozens of adventures about the great detective Sherlock Holmes (most were published under the name of his literary agent, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle). DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI'S crime novels include The Wheelman, The Blonde, and Severance Package (all from St. Martin's Press). He lives in Philadelphia.

This book sounds a lot of fun and comes out 11/15...also may be of interest to Swierczynski fans (Book Talk has a few ).

Picked this up the other day, haven't even cracked it open. I'm not much of a Sherlock Holmes fan, but gotta support my main man Duane.
