Publisher's Summary

Spring 1887. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson find a cuckoo in their comfortable nest at 221B Baker Street when, after a chance encounter in Hyde Park, 12-year-old Winston Spencer-Churchill is dumped on them by his far from doting mother, Lady Randolph. Winston blossoms under the affectionate, if occasionally jealous care of Watson. His developing detective skills and connections in Society are combined with a capacity for creating mayhem. Add in pack of Indians from Buffalo Bill's Wild West show and a homicidal pork butcher with an axe, and as Holmes says of this first in a series of adventures "I dare say these experiences have done him a power of good. He will be much better prepared for daily life at his public school".

I wrote the book, and I say pass on this.

When this audiobook came out I was so excited I couldn't wait for my author copy - I had to get it NOW, so I bought it on-line. I was gutted when I listened to even the first few minutes. The narrator's voice is wrong, his intonation amateurish, his style over-dramatic and grating. Sherlock Holmes and Young Winston is my book series, but I couldn't listen to this excruciating performance. I made my views clear to the publisher, and I was assured the dismal audiobook would be withdrawn, but it still seems to be around. Do yourselves a big favor and buy something else.
