Publisher's Summary

Requested by a frightened Lady Elisabeth Montague, Holmes and Watson travel all the way to the Montague home, situated on a remote desolate island, to investigate her somewhat fanciful fears.

Are the family in mortal danger? And why have the Montagues, once the darlings of London society, now shut themselves away from civilization in this bleak, god-forsaken retreat?

As the Montague murders begin, Holmes finds himself drawn, ever closer, to the dreaded Montague madness....

Fun listen

This sounds like a old time radio show but without the advertisements. It is entertaining for sure. The narrator really brings the characters to life! Wonderful job.
I freely wrote review after receiving this audiobook from the narrator.

Short and sweet!

If you’re a fan of Sherlock, you can’t really go wrong with this. Reminds me of the old school BBC radio shows more than a straight audiobook, but I’m not complaining. Kevin’s narration was dynamic and engaging. He had no trouble keeping me interested through the runtime.

Really good

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Scary family. A reclusive family as well. So when murder after murder happens it certainly gets Holmes and Watson thinking as to who the murderer is.

Enjoyable and engaging

Love this rendition of the Montague Murders, the adaption from stage to audio. I could visualize the characters as though sitting in the audience.

One of four new classic scripts of Holmes and Watson

Ian shimwell has written four new classic scripts in the world of Holmes and Watson. They are available individually and also now as a completed volume. I grew up with a love for the old basil rathbone and Nigel Bruce black and white Holmes movies. This story is written and performed in that same spirit. Truly a wonderful addition to any Holmes fans collections. Highly recommended. The narrators deliver that old time movie/radio show feel. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Play in the style of Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce

The second story in the Sherlock and Watson Scripts. This is a bit fantastical, but would make for a great short play to actually be performed.

This script is well written, but is a bit campy in it's language.

I love a Holmes murder mystery, don't you?

This story is set out as acts in a play, but it is a murder mystery, using the methods of Mr Conan-Doyle and his characters of Mesrs Holmes and Watson, and their art of deduction.
As usual, it's a convoluted plot, that keeps the viewer guessing until the last.

Classic Sherlock Holmes

I really enjoyed both the story and narration of this audio book and look forward to listening to my second book from the same author. The format is of that of a play rather than a story with scenes rather than chapters however, as I'm really missing the theatre through the pandemic, I let my imagination build the visuals from the information in the play.

Good Classic type Holmes mystery

A damsel in distress, a spooky island, family madness and murder. a classic type Holmes mystery. More of an audio drama than a book this is well performed except for the female characters who the narrator struggles with. Descent story with some twists and turns. I worked out whodunnit but it did take a little while. A distracting hour.

A bit of a lite Holmes

Please note this is more of a performed script with scene sets.
It is a pretty good listen. The narrator does a fantastic job with the narration.
As a Holmes fan I find this to be a little lite.
