For a debut author this is an amazing book. I enjoyed the heck out of it. The plot was great and the narrator was fabulous. The author plays in Downtown Abbey. You can not go wrong getting this book.

First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

I read these books years ago so I know the outcome. However Davina Porter adds a depth to these books you may not be able to imagine. Her voices are spot on, and her voice inflection amazing. Thank you!!! I LOVE these books!!!!

I hate the sound effects!!! This is precisely why I read. It’s about imagination. This is both distracting and deterring. While the story is fine, I️ won’t be listening to anymore.
