Publisher's Summary

There is always room in the world for more gripping tales about the exploits of the inimitable Sherlock Holmes and the redoubtable Dr. Watson. Here is a collection of five previously unknown cases from the astonishing career of the consulting detective and his ever-loyal partner. "An Affair of the Heart" demonstrates the critical interplay between the two men which made their partnership so memorable and endearing. "The Curious Matter of the Missing Pearmain" is a classic locked-room mystery, while "The Case of the Cuneiform Suicide Note" sees Dr. Watson using his expert knowledge in helping to solve the mystery surrounding the death of an academic. In "A Study in Verse", the pair assists the Birmingham City Police in a complicated case of robbery, which leads them toward a new and dangerous adversary. And to complete the collection, we have "The Trimingham Escapade", the very last case the pair enjoyed together, which neatly showcases the inestimable talents of Sherlock Holmes. All of these tales are designed to contribute in some small part to the lasting memory of two extraordinary men who once occupied that setting we have come to know and love as 221B Baker Street.

An interesting collection

These are five interesting short stories in the style of the originals, nicely done and enticing. The narrator, IMHO, is not the best, but I still enjoyed this book a lot.

A great set!

This was a splendid collection of some short stories with longer ones. Mower is an excellent representative of the skilled Sherlockian writers publishing today.

Hopeless

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator

What do you think your next listen will be?

Probably another Sherlock Holmes

What didn’t you like about Alan Weyman’s performance?

I simply could not stand the voices of Holmes and Watson. Therefore, I could not listen to the entire book. After listening to Simon Vance and others as Sherlock Holmes this narration was almost comic book material.

Do you think A Farewell to Baker Street needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No

Any additional comments?

It was a shame that this book was done this way. It could have been enjoyable if one could listen to the stories and not the voice.
