The following case has not previously been disclosed to the public due to the sensitive information on foreign affairs. All those involved were previously bound by the Official Secrets Act. With the passage of time and the onset of the Great War, these impediments have been removed and the story can now be safely told.
When an executed original of a secret treaty between England and France, known as the French Treaty, is stolen from the country estate of Lord Halifax, Scotland Yard asks Joanna, Dr. John Watson, Jr., and Dr. John Watson, Sr., to use their detective skills to participate in the hunt for the missing treaty. As the government becomes more restless to find the missing document and traditional investigative means fail to turn up the culprit, Joanna is forced to devise a clever plan to trap the thief and recover the missing treaty.
Told from the point of view of Dr. John Watson, Jr., in a style similar to the original Sherlock Holmes stories, A Study in Treason is based partly on facts in our world and partly on the facts left to us by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
A Study in Treason is the perfect audiobook for fans of Sherlock Holmes.

Great performance- Easy to Solve Case
Steve West is a master storyteller. The multitude of voices he portrayed takes a very high level of talent. There were clues early on that helped me guess the ending, but it was still enjoyable. I found myself becoming anxious for the characters and cheering on Holmes and Watson(s) as they unraveled the mystery. Definitely worth the credit. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the hints make it too easy to guess the traitor’s name.

A study in Q & A
I was really looking forward to this 2nd book in the series. Unfortunately I ended up disappointed.While the story took many twists and turns, the style in which it was told eventually wore on my nerves. Much of the book was an unending Q and A with Joanna and both of the Watsons. They asked and she answered displaying her amazing deductive powers over and over and over. Hopefully in the next book, there can be more of a natural discovery of her abilities throughout the storyline.
