From the Supernatural Case Files of Sherlock Holmes:
Many of Holmes's more fantastic cases have yet to see publication, since their grotesque and outré nature would have stretched the reader's sensibilities beyond any normal boundaries. They are, in a word, unbelievable, and I have held these cases in abeyance at Holmes' request to protect both his reputation and my own small credibility as narrator.
But the time has come to reveal them, per Holmes's instructions. I follow these instructions faithfully and humbly, and let my readers judge if we have done wrong to withhold them for as long as we did.

Holmes and Watson encounter sinister dealings with an American ship from the town of Innsmouth comes to England in pursuit of an implacable revenge.

This is not a book for Sherlockiana fans, or Lovecraftians, but if you like weird for weirdness sake, it might be up your alley.
The writing could have used a little tightening, and more familiarity with the Holmes canon and Lovecraftian style.
More familiarity with the text could have helped.
I was very disappointed by this. It seemed lazy, and not at all in the style of Holmes or Lovecraft.
Poor writing and a lazy plot does not make this an enjoyable listen, but fans of the supernatural might find it interesting.
