I enjoy Shelock Holmes, and appreciate the role AC Doyle had in developing the genre. Not all the mysteries are well developed though. This one is. It's a masterpiece. The narration is outstanding. One of the best audiobooks I've had.
This is more of a thriller than a mystery. There's a bit of a surprise at the end, but not much. Everyone knows who-dun-it about a quarter of the way in. Even the action to catch the guy is just stuff that happens, rather than a plan. I enjoyed it some, but not as much as others in this series.
I enjoyed this very much. The plot and characterizations are well developed. I understand the criticisms of the narrator. She does indeed take pauses sometime, and it takes getting used to. I think it's usually when the thought is changing, and not when a tight dialog is going on. Her tones of voices are very different for the different characters.
Four stories written as mystery writing was just underway. Not the very best, but well worth it for those that like the mystery classics. The narration is good.
I'm so glad the early books were added. I started with the earliest Death on Demand available on Audible at the time. They don't have to be read in order, but it seems more fun that way. Classic mystery techniques.
I enjoyed this. The plot and characters were well developed. I didn't like the ending, but I'll try the next in the series.
This is absolutely huge in the development of the mystery novel. The plot and the characters are well developed. You'll here the detective state fundamentals of detection that have been picked up and used ever since.
The writing is old fashioned, but it's terrific. The narration is adequate. I strongly recommend this to anyone who loves mysteries, especially classic mysteries. I really wish the rest of Anna Katherine Green's work was available on Audible.
I've really enjoyed all this series, but this has been the best one yet. The plot has many twists, but there all set up and all fair.
I'm not surprised that the other reviews are mixed. Mystery short stories are a bit different. This collection is much better than average. The narrations were also fine, which i better than average for a collection. I have 2 stories in other collections. (Blue Cross/Bluebeard's Bathtub). I recommend this for those who like mystery collections.
I too was glad to hear the 1st book. It makes understanding the later one easier. The narrators strong Scottish accent bothered me a bit. Only Hamish is Scottish.
The mystery is very well developed and enjoyable. The story could have been shorter.
This is my favorite CD Sloan audiobook in the series so far. Perhaps I paid more attention, because this narrator is much improved over the narrator of the previous audiobooks. The plot is clever and enjoyable.
