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!
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.
