The year is 1897. Sherlock Holmes and his lovely young American daughter Lucy James must foil a plot to destroy Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebration, defeating the high-ranking traitor who has eluded them in their previous adventures. If they fail, the Queen and thousands of innocent people will die, and the British Empire will fall into chaos.

What a Jubilee!

What made the experience of listening to The Jubilee Problem: A Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James Mystery the most enjoyable?

Wendy Tremont King and Simon Prebble made the listening very enjoyable. I enjoyed the interactions with the common people who helped Lucy obtain the cart and clothes

What other book might you compare The Jubilee Problem: A Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James Mystery to and why?

I would not compare the 1-2-3 books in The Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James Mysteries series with the 4-5-6 books done by Wendy Tremont King and Simon Prebble.
Wendy's voice portrays Lucy James so well and Simon Prebble is great with Sherlock Holmes. Frankly, there is no comparison, that I skipped 1-2-3 books and moved on to the narrators I really like!

Which character – as performed by Wendy Tremont King and Simon Prebble – was your favorite?

Lucy James is so witty and intelligent. Sherlock Holmes so British and detective like!
Lucy is my favorite character as I have a daughter Lucy...sorry Simon!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, too long for 1 sitting.

Any additional comments?

Recommend: Redo Books 1-2-3 in The Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James Mysteries series by Wendy Tremont King and Simon Prebble, if you want this series to be a hit and sell books! It's a shame the 1st 3 books are done differently, may not encourage listeners to to even go to further books in the series.....

She is showing her Sherlock

Lots of goings on, intrigue, kidnapping and murder. What is it that makes solving these happenings so necessary? Why is pressure from high levels of government pushing Holms et all to take the case? Why is it something Sherlock Holmes, Dr Watson and his daughter must solve and stop! Written I feel, with a bit of tongue in cheek humor, these books are certainly enjoyable.Fast paced and involved with a lot of action, if you like Holmes stories you will most likely enjoy this. UNLESS you are a purist?
