    "Great Mystery"

    I read the book as a teenager and love it. This version was just as great. I have listened to the narrator in other books and he is very good to switch voices between characters. It you like Conan Doyle then this is a great read.

    "An entertaining adventure"

    If you like David Case (a.k.a. Frederick Davidson), you'll like this one. If you don't, you won't. I find him entertaining even when he's at his most over the top, and I thoroughly enjoyed this version of the story.
