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 keen 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 short review to update challenges
I was happy to continue with The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes Mysteries series. I love Sherlock Holmes style mysteries, and the setting in England. Even if I didn’t, this is narrated by STEVE WEST.
In A Study in Treason, Joanna has married the younger Dr. John Watson, son of the original Watson. She has been working with her father-in-law after his health issues. He is asked to solve a tricky international case but refuses to take it on without his son and daughter-in-law. It did seem strange how the men deferred to her so frequently but overall it was a fascinating and fun read.
Now to I have to wait impatiently for The Disappearance of Alistair Ainsworth to be available at the library. That way I can get my Sherlock and Steve West fix.
I love everything STEVE WEST!!!!!! He’s just my favorite. I enjoyed listening to this story at my usual 1.5x speed. I appreciate his work with both male and female voices and he handles the English characters so well. Definitely, his narration enhanced my enjoyment.
