Broadway star William Gillette, 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. It is then 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. author Ken LUDWIG

“For the majority of people in the world the phrase, “The game’s afoot,” would be credited to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. They might be surprised that Shakespeare not only coined the phrase but that King Henry V expressed it at the conclusion of his famous “Once more unto the breach” speech in Act 3 Scene 1”
It means that a situation (the game) is already happening, underway, or being prepared (afoot) — that is, the game is on.”
