Arthur Conan Doyle’s foray into the realm of international espionage, set during WWI and originally published under the title "His Last Bow", in 1917, marks a departure from his signature detective procedurals, as it involves two German spies, preparing to fly back to their home country with stockpiles of intelligence in hand, and their unexpected encounter with the advanced-in-age but shrewd-as-ever Holmes, who foils their seemingly well-laid plans in this absorbing audiobook superbly performed by David Timson, whose throaty, realistic depiction of the villainous German spies elevates this late-period Holmes novella.
This story is from The Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes (His Last Bow) collection.
Further adventures by the master of observation and deduction, as faithfully recounted by his companion and greatest admirer, Dr Watson. "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans," "The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax", and "The Adventure of the Dying Detective" are among the stories. David Timson's award-winning performances continue with this series.
