Listeners will thrill to hear David Timson’s lively and engrossing performance of "The Adventure of the Copper Beeches", one of Arthur Conan Doyle’s last Sherlock Holmes stories excerpted from the author’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, which collected the fictional super sleuth’s final slew of adventures. In this curious mystery, Holmes advises a woman concerned about whether to accept a strange governess position which stipulates a selection of extremely unusual requirements. And of course Holmes’ expert deductive skills are required to puzzle out a series of further mysterious circumstances once his client takes residence....
Timson is a practiced performer whose easy familiarity with Doyle’s characters, and with his sparse, active prose, is readily apparent in this enjoyable performance.
This is a story from the The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes I collection.
In this collection are four of the finest cases of Mr. Sherlock Holmes, narrated by his faithful friend and admirer Dr. Watson. What was the horror of the speckled band or the secret behind the curious legacy for men of red hair? These and other puzzles are solved by this bloodhound of a genius.

Right up there with the best. David Timson does an admirable job handling all the voices, including the woman's, so that they are distinctive but not distracting.
No spoilers, please.
No, this is my first. He's very, very good.
The governess exploring the locked corridor.
A cozy, Victorian read for an evening!
