Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes Plays the Game is an interesting new collection of the further adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. It is unique in combining the style and intrigue of Holmes and Watson stories with the developing technology of turn-of-the-century Victorian England. Written in the original Strand Magazine style and told by Holmes' companion, Dr John Watson, these previously untold tales unfold with wit and humour. Although conveyed in the classic Holmes style, these adventures see the pair involved in tracking down a lost Shakespeare manuscript, illusions, railways, airships, kidnapped animals, and people, plus testing alibis, coded messages, advanced communications, and electric weapons. Holmes applies his highly developed powers of deduction to whole new fields of understanding, and the stories deftly mingle fiction with facts and events of the day.

Narrator troubles again

There is some gabbling of speech and difficulty in speed. The characters are conveyed reasonably well except for Holmes and Watson. The stories are all right and grow on you as you go along. It's the sort of listening you do while doing the ironing or cooking, not something that grabs you.

I'll go 4 star

Pretty good collection of new "Holmes" stories. Most are good but as always with a collection a couple are weak. Good narration that grows on you as each story passes. I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this honest review.
