December 1889. Fresh from debunking a 'ghostly' hound in Dartmoor, Sherlock Holmes has returned to London, only to find himself the target of a deadly vendetta. A beautiful client arrives with a tale of ghosts, kidnapping and dynamite on a whisky estate in Scotland, but brother Mycroft trumps all with an urgent assignment in the South of France. On the fabled Riviera, Holmes and Watson encounter treachery, explosions, rival French detective Jean Vidocq...and a terrible discovery.

Out of dozens of Sherlock stories over listened to, this is the best. Great plot twists and turns. It's really long, but with the time it takes.

This is much more so a story of a girl who is trained by Holmes, you hardly read about his doings. Not a bad story though, just clearly geared more so towards girls as it is a sort of romance novel.
