"Playwright Jeffrey Hatcher takes Arthur Conan Doyle's famous characters and drops them into a story inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's novella The Suicide Club to create a thrilling comic mystery. The whodunit mystery comes complete with a wow-I-didn't-see-that-coming ending" ~ Arizona Daily Star
"Hatcher has a winner ... it's intelligent, clever, teasing, seductively engaging and just plain fun" ~ Tucson Weekly
