It's an interesting story with Holmes and Russell embroiled in another critical international imbroglio. Toss in two of my favorite characters, Ali and Mahmoud Hazr, and you have a book as enjoyable as any in the series.
The addition of Robert Ian Mackenzie as a narrator was the first major mistake in the series. I have all the books, I've listened to them repeatedly, and Jenny Sterlin IS the voice of Sherlock Holmes. She's one of a handful of female narrators who can do justice to male voices to the point you completely forget her gender. I loved all the previous books. I cannot say the same for this one. Please, please, don't do this again. As a matter of fact, if you re-release it with Jenny Sterlin as the sole narrator, I will happily buy that one too.
