Description

Quirk is unveiling the "Crimes of Dr. Watson", the first completely interactive Sherlock Holmes mystery. This illustrated hardcover book, complete with Victorian era illustrations, contains an original novella in the form of a letter from Dr. John H. Watson. As our story opens, we discover that the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes has vanished - and to make matters worse, his good friend Dr. Watson has been framed for a grisly and terrifying murder! From a damp cell in Coldbath Fields prison, Watson recounts the tragic events leading up to his arrest - and offers a number of clues that can be used to identify the true culprit. Once you've finished reading Watson's letter, it's up to you to sift through the clues and solve the mystery. And when you think you've identified the culprit, you can slice open the final signature of the book (sealed at the printer) to read the remainder of the story.show more
