    It is November 1890 and London is gripped by a merciless winter. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are enjoying tea by the fire when an agitated gentleman arrives unannounced at 221b Baker Street. He begs Holmes for help, telling the unnerving story of a scar-faced man with piercing eyes who has stalked him in recent weeks.

    Roxalanne says: "Recommended as a welcome return"
    "Simply wonderful!"

    What made the experience of listening to The House of Silk the most enjoyable?

    Sherlock Holmes comes alive again à la Arthur Conan Doyle. Exciting story with an absolutely excellent narrator who makes all the characters seem so authentic. Easy on the ear with an English as


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The story is told from Dr Watson's point of view and it is this character who is the thread throughout the story. I loved his comments and observations on Holmes' personality.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended listening - I will certainly look out for more books by this narrator.

    Edith Hahn was an outspoken young woman in Vienna when the Gestapo forced her into a ghetto and then into a slave labor camp. When she returned home months later, she knew she would become a hunted woman, so she went underground.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Nazi Officer's Wife again? Why?

    Yes. It is an excellent story and gives a deep insight into life during the Nazi-Era from both the Jewish and the German angle.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The human will to survive - regardless of any obstacles. And, of course, a first hand recollection of the times as experienced by a Jewess thrown into a 100% Nazi environment.


    Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first Barbara Rosenblat experience - and will certainly not be my last. She is a very, very good narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended - for the story (a true story!) as well as the narrator.
