Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are summoned to Theobald Grange, the Warwickshire home of Lady Heminworth. 

Being of a nervous and superstitious disposition, her Ladyship lives in fear. Her husband and elder son were recently murdered, apparently by the ghost of a court jester who was executed on the site centuries before. The apparition has warned that she, too, is to die. 

Holmes rejects a supernatural explanation, although his adversary seems unaffected by gunfire and is able to take flight and disappear. The "Great Detective" brings his powers to bear, but still the killings continue....

Great story! Wonderful narration! Very enjoyable!

Great story! Wonderful narration! Very enjoyable! Could have been written by A.C. Doyle himself. Very impressed with the narrator's voicing of characters. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

Enjoyable

Is it bizarre I picked up a Sherlock book when I’ve never listened to an original? I’m sure the movies with Robert Downey Jr doesn’t count.

So being slightly unfamiliar with ‘authentic’ writing, I didn’t like how Sherlock figured it out off the pages, then explained what he learned while he was away. And we never had any idea why he went where he went and the bread crumbs he followed. I prefer a mystery in which I can see or read the crumbs - even if it doesn’t piece together into a slice of bread and I end up with a bag of croutons.

I loved the narrator. He only currently has a couple other books another him in Audible, and one is another by this author, so I’ll pass.
