Publisher's Summary

When Holmes gives up the adventurous life of a consulting detective and retires to the Sussex countryside to raise bees, little does he or his old friend Dr. John Watson realize that their greatest adventures lies ahead - an adventure spanning centuries and extending across the solar system.... For nothing less than human civilization lies at state as Sherlock Holmes finds himself moving inexorably toward the final and most terrible confrontation with his ancient enemy, the time-jumping Napoleon of crime, professor Moriarty!

©2000 David Dvorkin (P)2012 Audible, Inc.

Critic Reviews

"Delightfully preposterous...a lot of fun!" (The Republic)
"Professor Moriarty, once reported dead, but now rejuventated by the Time Machine which Moriarty has swiped from H.G. Wells' time traveler.... Doyle to H.G. Wells to Dvorkin...nice triple play!" (The New York Times)

Sherlock Holmes will never die.

If you want to buy an argument about the greatest detective in the world, some of the modern updates are highly entertaining and although I approach some with apprehension, by and large those to be found on audible.com are well up to standard. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the alternatives and this is no exception. If you are a traditionalist, as I was once, it may take a little time to reorient but it is time well spent.

Totally awful, waste of Time

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I really can't think of anyone who'd enjoy this book as it was so bad.

What was most disappointing about David Dvorkin’s story?

The entire story was poor, the crimes being solved of which there were very few, the manner in which the crimes were solved, the time travelling part was awful and messed up leaving many questions.

What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?

The story telling was of a goo standard.

What character would you cut from Time for Sherlock Holmes?

The author, so it would never have been written.

Any additional comments?

I hope I can return this item, very poorly written and thought out story lines.
