Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes! The very name of the world’s greatest detective conjures up images of Victorian London, gaslit streets, hansom cabs, and dense fogs. But there was a time, a dark three-year period, when London had to make do without Sherlock Holmes. From 1891 to 1894, he was presumed to be dead, having perished during the epic struggle with that infamous Napoleon of Crime, Professor Moriarty, atop the Reichenbach Falls. But unknown to most, even his friend Dr. Watson, Holmes survived. During those three years, he roamed the world, acting as an agent for the British government and using his very special skills along the way. 

In volume one of Holmes Away from Home, the incredible two-volume collection of new traditional Holmes adventures, we find our hero crisscrossing the world - Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and the US. 

During this period known as the Great Hiatus, Holmes may have been in disguise, but there is no mistaking the person who Watson described as “...the best and wisest man whom I have ever known.” The game is afoot!

Needs a different narrator

The stories aren't the problem, it's the narrator. He sounds like I would if I read these stories, not like a performer trying to bring characters to life for an audience. I suffered through 10 minutes of "The Final Problem" before I tried to figure out how to get my money back. I want to finish this book, but I can't follow the story with this guy reading it like a 5th grader.

Interesting

If you like Sherlock Holmes this book might interest you.

There is no foul language. Violence does not going to gory details. The story is well constructed.

The narrator does a wonderful job.
