Philadelphia City Paper Editor Adds to the Sherlock Holmes Legacy

Duane Swierczynski's new interactive mystery is told from the perspective of Sherlock Holmes' trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson. The Crimes of Dr. Watson is sort of like an adult version of a pop-up book, as the clues in the book -- including replica newspapers -- fold out and are three-dimensional. Swierczynski, who in addition to editing the City Paper is a best-selling crime writer, says the book is targeted to both adults and children and can be a communal mystery-solving experience.
