Byook announces Murder Sound Effects Contest – identify mysterious sounds if you can!  Win prizes including an iPod Touch!      

The Adventure of the Speckled Band, which was the author’s favorite of his 56 Sherlock Holmes stories, investigates the April 1883 murder of Julia Stoner.  One morning, Sherlock Holmes is awakened by the sudden arrival of Helen Stoner (Julia’s sister) in his London apartment at 221 Baker Street.  She seems deeply traumatized. The gruesome death of her sister Julia and the growing madness of her step father have turned her life into a terrifying nightmare. Holmes and Watson must unravel the mystery of who killed Julia.  Are you clever enough to solve the murder before Sherlock Holmes does?

The iPhone’s The Adventure of the Speckled Band adds intriguing and mysterious sounds to the brilliant storytelling narrative of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  Have fun with these sound effects!  Give them a few seconds to load :

“Be startled as the victim’s screams resonate.  Shiver as the rain falls into the palm of your hand.  Be afraid when a match bursts into flame.
