Sherlock Holmes: The Voice of Treason plus The Great Game Alexa Skill

We’re pleased to announce that Sherlock Holmes: The Voice of Treason, a new eight-hour audio drama co-written by Cavan and George Mann is out today.

There is a plot to kidnap Queen Victoria and only Sherlock Holmes can stop it…or can he?

Investigating a crime seemingly unconnected to the Royal Family, Holmes & Watson uncover a conspiracy to kidnap Queen Victoria and destabilise the British Empire.

With a ticking clock to her next public engagement, Holmes and Watson must discover who is behind the plot and locate her majesty, while Mycroft tries to keep the monarch’s disappearance a secret from the British people.

At first, Holmes believes Moriarty is responsible for the abduction, but when the Napoleon of Crime is proved innocent, Holmes must work with his arch-nemesis to rescue the Queen.

An Audible Original drama starring Nicholas Boulton as Sherlock Holmes and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith as Dr. John Watson alongside a full cast.

But that’s not all! Cavan and George have also written a full-cast interactive drama available via your Alexa-enabled device for free! To play, all you need do is say: “Alexa, start the Great Game.”

Over on the Strange Matter website, Cavan says:

It’s an interesting challenge, creating an adventure which is both a satisfying game and a full audio play. In this case we wanted to ensure that The Great Game is true to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s world, while also offering the player enough choices to drive the action. In the skill, you control the action, making decisions for the Great Detective and, of course, Dr. Watson.
