Publisher's Summary

These six cases are among the last undertaken by Sherlock Holmes before he retired to the Sussex downs. However, the problems facing the sleuth are as diverse and challenging as ever. What with seeking the whereabouts of the stolen Mazarin Diamond, discovering the importance of being called Garrideb, encountering a mysterious murder on Thor Bridge, searching for eternal youth and the threat of a vampire in Sussex, there is no sign of Holmes' deductive powers slowing down.


Audible Editor Reviews

David Timson as Dr. Watson is as perfect a narrator as the listener could hope for. His light British accent makes for exceptional diction, while his superb acting provides appropriate pacing, pauses, and vocal fluidity. Each of his character voices is completely separate from the others, and when Holmes and Watson have a dialogue, it’s as if two different men are speaking and you have the pleasure of eavesdropping. A superb production, masterfully acted, this first volume in the series recounts cases that were among the last Holmes took on before his retirement.

The True Sherlock

This is Sherlock Holmes come to life! I've listened to all of David Timson's Sherlock Homes episodes and if there were a hundred episodes I would buy them all. Every story is about an hour long and the violin music thrown in makes it perfect. Hopefully there will be a Volume II soon.

One of the Best!

I have listened to almost all of David Timson's Sherlock Holmes audiobooks and this one is by far the bast I've heard yet! I really liked the selection of stories:

- The Problem of Thor Bridge
- The Adventure of the Mazarine Stone
- The Adventure of the Creeping Man
- The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire
- The Adventure of the Three Garridebs
- The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier

My favourite by far was "The Adventure of the Creeping Man" - I found it a bit fantastical, but liked it more because of that!
