[prMac.com] Guilford, Maine - Sherlock Holmes 2 - The Black river Emerald by newcomer developer AppEndix LLC is both: a book, in fact a complete novel in the best tradition of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories, written by renowned gamebook author Peter Ryan; and an interactive app, in which you attempt to uncover the mysterious theft of the famous Black River emerald from the once-exclusive Belton School for boys in Shropshire. Theft, blackmail and attempted murder are not yet part of the curriculum! And if mystery and danger abound, can Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson be far behind?
Sherlock Holmes 2 is the second of eight Sherlock Holmes Solo Mysteries gamebooks by Iron Crown Enterprises to be published as interactive apps, including one title which was never available in English before. The app is universal (iPad/iPhone) and multi-language: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Brazilian/Portuguese are supported initially.
