0 stars if possible

About half way to the grocery it was clear that this was a poor choice. Stiff dialog delivered woodenly (think high school drama) and it sounds like it was recorded in a bathroom. NOT recommended

Not my cup of earl grey

I was hoping this would be a bit of pastiche similar to Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula or the Courdurie graphic novels. Instead I found it to be more about how Scotland witches might have lived centuries ago with a little bit of Holmes tucked in when the author remembered who his lead was. Too much Hashish and not enough actual deduction until the last act for me. Would have made a fine period piece without using Holmes.

Another side of Holmes

First: A lot of discussing the pros and cons of folklore, religion and politics. The author seems to have a need to get his beliefs off of his chest. Some politically incorrect speech and views, but not for the date in which the story takes place. Yet, sometimes words and phrases are from present time. Second: Holmes has given up cocaine for hashish. Third: Holmes talks about his sex life! Last: The basic story is quite good and interesting. Just be prepared for a lot of the characters' (the author's) views peppered between the beginning and end. The reader was very good. One star off for a "very" few mispronounced words.
