Publisher's Summary

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote of many dreadful murders, but the one which astonished and distressed readers the most was when the author, anxious to try something new, killed off Sherlock Holmes. Trapped in mortal combat with the dastardly Professor Moriarty, Holmes and his opponent plunged to their deaths in the Reichenback Fall. For 10 long years, Baker Street was without its most revered resident. Then, in 1903, Doyle took pity on his readers and brought the sagacious sleuth back to life. The stories included in this masterful book tell of his return.

Cases of mysterious codes, persecuted millionaires, stalkers, abductions, and a meeting with ‘the worst man in London’ are all attacked with renewed vigour. But Holmes’ old enemies are watching his every move.

"The Adventure of the Empty House", "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder", "The Adventure of the Dancing Men", "The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist", "The Adventure of the Priory School", "The Adventure of Black Peter", "The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton", "The Adventure of the Six Napoleons", "The Adventure of the Three Students", "The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez", "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter"," The Adventure of the Abbey Grange", and "The Adventure of the Second Stain".

    "Ralph Cosham...The best READER ever!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love Sherlock Holmes....have read and reread for years. Even enjoy the newer tv versions...I know every story by heart, BUT it is Ralph Cosham's voice which makes this so awesome.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I already know every story!


    What about Ralph Cosham’s performance did you like?

    I love his British accent and you can still understand every word! I am an avid audio book listener so the reader is important to me! Instead of looking for books by my favorite authors, I have been searching and listening to anything that lists him as the reader, unfortunately I wish there were many more :(


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    See above ;)

    Story
    "Ralph Cosham delivers a brilliant Sherlock Holmes"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook if you are into good clean literature. Its well read and the stories aren't linear and predictable.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The characters are varied, and the humanity and brilliance of Sherlock never leaves you feeling bored or uninterested. To come up with such an imaginative characters and story lines deserves the title of Sir, Arthur Conan Doyle.


    What does Ralph Cosham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Cosham varies the characters without annoying over exaggerating, its subtle that the narration is still a uniform style, without being monotonous. I love and respect Charlton Griffin's narrations of history. He narrates Sherlock Holmes too, but when I sampled the 2 narrators, I prefer Ralph over Charlton in this case.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, I immediately wanted more Sherlock Holmes adventures. I no longer think classic literature are for the birds. I love it!
