But this quartet of conundrums will put even Holmes' deductive genius and Watson's stout heart to the test. The remarkable duo must match wits with a dastardly blackmailer, recover a coronet of priceless gems, trace a vanished bride, and solve a murder so strange that Watson considers it the most singular of all their cases. Based on four classic short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes and Watson: The Game's Afoot is both a gripping mystery and a celebration of enduring friendship. Read More
