Publisher's Summary

A frightened woman contacts Sherlock Holmes believing her husband is plotting to murder her. Holmes entraps the devious spouse and turns him over to the police. Several days later, the woman is found hanged in her home. Now Holmes and Watson find themselves immersed in a far greater mystery, one with connections to high-ranking government officials and treacherous foreign affairs.

Soon the great detective and his loyal companion become the targets of a deadly assassin all because of something called the Berenford Letter. Thus begins the chase that will lead the duo through the darkest corners of London; from an abandoned munitions factory to the eerie and sinister depot of the dead, the Necropolis Station, and end in the gloomy corridors of an insane asylum. All the while Holmes realizes they are being manipulated by a criminal genius whose ultimate goal will reveal the secret of the dead and a hidden piece of Sherlock Holmes' own past.

    Story
    "Worst narration I've heard so far."

    This is without a doubt the worst performance of ANY audio book I've ever heard, even read at 1.25x speed. I have dozens of Holmes stories and have listened to hundreds of books. The story itself is good, but in the AUDIO book format, performance is important. Until this one, I could endure any reading in quest of a good and entertaining story. This is a truly horrible, painfully done project for Kuch.

    Same book, different reader = a lot more fun for this Holmes fan.

    Story
    "Good Plot,Rotten Narration!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The plot is pretty good but the story needs re-editing; it lags in places. The narrator stinks!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No one.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Kuch’s performances?

    NO WAY!


    Was Sherlock Holmes: Secrets of the Dead worth the listening time?

    Not to me.

    Story
    "Excellent Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson mystery."
    Where does Sherlock Holmes: Secrets of the Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Easily one of the best, captures the essence of the characters and pulls the reader along wonderfully.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sherlock Holmes: Secrets of the Dead?

    Watson and Inspector Gregson going into the cellars of the sanitarium to rescue an imprisoned Holmes.


    What about George Kuch’s performance did you like?

    Kuch does a fantastic job with all the characters, delineating them smoothly as if we had an entire cast of readers.


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

    Watson taking care of the boy Fast Ollie and for a second give some thought to he and his wife possibly taking the boy in. Touching moment.


    Any additional comments?

    A truly excellent audio rendition of a top notch mystery.
