Publisher's Summary

London: June 1897. It's the day before Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee and her son, the playboy Prince of Wales, arrives at 221B Baker Street, pursued by anarchist assassins. The greatest chef in the world, Auguste Escoffier, also arrives, his career about to be shattered by blackmail and scandal. Can Holmes, Watson, and Irene Adler save the life of the heir to the British crown and the reputation of the master chef? 

This action-filled tale of royal debauchery, priceless gems, and gourmet food will provide Dr. Watson with the material for Sherlock Holmes' most bizarre and tastiest case.

Surprisingly good :D

I think I need to make a disclaimer? warning? with this review, because your enjoyment of this story will vary depending on your expectations.

If you are waiting for a canonical Sherlock Holmes' story, you'll be disappointed. These are not the characters you know and love, and therefore you'll be tempted to be very harsh in your opinion and even feel tempted to stop reading/listening to it. If you do that, you'll miss a fun, entertaining story with a clever plot and that would be a shame.

Oh! and this might be presented as a Holmes-Adler mystery, but the actual hero here is Watson :P

So yes, I was a bit annoyed at the beginning, but I soon find myself immersed in the story and really enjoyed it.

And Christopher Power's narration is excellent!
