Publisher's Summary

A young woman begs Sherlock Holmes to help find her missing fiancé, but the great detective makes an uncharacteristic mistake. Then Sherlock’s daughter, Lucy James, takes on a missing-person case of her own, but she must also keep a vicious criminal away from Becky, Lucy’s 10-year-old sister-in-law. Little Becky soon becomes dangerously involved in both cases. No one foresees the devastating news that Sherlock Holmes has been murdered. 

The newest adventure in this popular mystery series takes us from the Old Bailey courthouse and the seacoast lairs of smugglers to a grand British country estate and the posh financial headquarters of Lloyd’s of London. For Watson, Sherlock, and Lucy, survival will require valor, sacrifice, and acts that go far, far outside the law.

Highly entertaining mystery

This is the first book I've read in the series. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series. This was a highly entertaining mystery told through mostly two points of view, Dr Watson and Lucy. The two stories intersect and are told in an exciting manner. the characters are well developed. This book can definitely be read as a standalone. I am going to go back and read them in order, but you don't have to. I highly recommend this book.

The narration was good. I sped it up because the original speed seemed too slow with too many pauses. Once I changed the speed, it was a great listen.

my top SH listen

This series has become my top Sherlock Holmes series. Well written and the narration is simply the best!
I think it's a must to purchase in order as the character development will keep Holmes fans ( like myself) happy with a well-written story that includes all characters getting involved without depriving Sherlock of
being Sherlock!

C'mon Audible-- let's get # 9 available.

Die Again, Mr. Holmes

I am a Sherlock Holmes fan and I am happy to say that I really liked this book. I wish I can listen to the first 7 books though as this is the first of the series that I listened to.

Anyway, the characters were effectively brought to life by the narration. The story flowed so well and I was not bored for a moment. It was a truly entertaining story and I did not mind the 11+ hours of listening!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Mystery

I love a good mystery with great characters and this one does not disappoint. This is more of a family affair, they solve the case together.
I loved it and I would highly recommend it to all.

Great mystery

This was a very intricate and intriguing story. The characters and sub stories within really made the characters stand out. Sherlock Holmes, his daughter Lucy, somewhat an investigator herself, her detective husband, his brilliant 11 year old niece and of course Watson all work different parts of the puzzle and it comes together nicely. I received a complimentary audio and this review is voluntary.
