Holmes & Co.
Summary from Andrea Angiolino, used with permission.
A streamlined game system for role-playing detective stories. Players are detectives investigating on murders, thefts and such. The authors later become some of the most successful writers of murder parties in Italy: their games are still staged in theatres and summer festivals. In this RPG they also give suggestions about how to write adventures based on published mystery novels.
First agile edition, 32 A4 pages. Rules are supplied for "English style" investigations, based on clues and psychology far more than on action. A complete introductory adventure is included: "L'Avventura del Piede del Diavolo" ("The Adventure of the Devil's Foot"), from a short Sherlock Holmes story by Arthur Conan Doyle, from the "His Last Bow" anthology.
