I took to 'House of Silk' with great eagerness. Horowitz is a good writer and he captures the essence of Holmes and Watson quite well.
The performance is top notch and makes up for some of the story's mild shortcomings.
While I felt guided through a series of events through London in the late 19th century, I felt the story offered little chance for the reader/listener to deduce anything on their own. What clues that Horowitz does leave are obvious and offer no red herrings.
We're left with the last minute revelations of wires to Dublin, Belfast and Boston to have Holmes magically come to the conclusion giving the listener no opportunity to work it out them selves.
That said, I did enjoy this story and do recommend it to those who enjoy Holmes.
