a lot of authors can't help trying a Sherlock type story and this is one. As it goes, it is ok, and i think it is considered one of the "classic" SF pastiches, but it may be a little more for devout fans of Sherlock and Poul Anderson.
I do think that it is the type of story that benefits from a more light hearted, and quicker paced narration. This narrator is not very good at all and probably hinders (at least my) enjoyment of the tale.
It appears this Mike Vendetti has formed his own narrative/audio company and is going through stories that may be in public domain and/or not optioned by bigger companies like Audible etc yet, and that is not necessarily a good thing as he is not a good narrator nor is this guy, in fact they may be same person, their slow ponderous style is so similar.
