Brilliant. Conan Doyle would be proud!

The combination of a skilled storyteller and a masterful read er has created a new dimension of the basic Conan Doyle body of work. By this I mean the aural dimension. For me, my mental images of Holmes, Watson and the rest of the characters have been permanently enhanced by this production. They have come me alive in a way that would be impossible by any other means.
I intend to hunt down any additional audio books by the same team..

Fantastic stories

This book was one of those that made me sad when it ended. I highly recommend it if you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes. Of all the pastiche books I have read, this is by far one of the best. The author presents clever mysteries, and writes in a style that is both similar to the Canon, while maintaining a sensitivity and style that was a joy to listen to.

Voice of Holmes

Voice of Holmes is real pathetic. I just cannot believe such a voice would be allowed.

Good stories

I'm a bit Sherlock obsessed since reading the originals many years ago and always hunting out new stories. Thoroughly enjoyed these, neat solutions and well narrated although occasionally Holmes character delivery went a bit William Shatner.
