Without a clue by Agatha Christie( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legendary detective Sherlock Holmes and the inimitable Dr. Watson (or is the other way around?) are at the center of this comic spoof that stars ACADEMY AWARD®-Winning actors Michael Caine (1999, Best Supporting Actor, The Cider House Rules; 1986 Best Supporting Actor, Hannah and Her Sisters) and Ben Kingsley (1982, Best Actor, Gandhi). Dr. John Watson (Kinglsey) has fooled the world. He's created a work of fiction in the figure of the crime-solving sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, when it is he himself who has set about solving crimes. With the public demanding to see the legendary Holmes in the flesh, and to keep the charade in play, Watson hires out-of-work actor Reginald Kincaid (Caine) to assume the role with very mixed, and very funny, results. The game's afoot with Watson and the Unlikely Holmes hot on the trail of Professor Moriarty (Paul Freeman, Raiders of the Lost Ark), the nefarious mastermind behind a plot that could topple the British Empire."--Container
