Winner! 2012 Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allen Poe Awards – Best Play, “The Game’s Afoot” takes place in December 1936. Broadway star, William Gillette, who was admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous.  Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas Holidays.
