Audible Editor Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Narration adds to the enjoyment"
    Where does The Adventure of the Copper Beeches rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Adventure of the Copper Beeches?

    No spoilers, please.


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

    No, this is my first. He's very, very good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The governess exploring the locked corridor.


    Any additional comments?

    A cozy, Victorian read for an evening!
