A mix

The quality of these stories varies, as is usual with collections. The narration is passable. None is outstanding except the Naval Treaty, which is found in Sherlock Holmes collections. Still, I recommend the collection to those who can't get enough of classically written mysteries. For those who just want a good read, probably not.

Getting better

The stories are still great, the readers not so. However, some of the readers are more capable, the better ones try and stay away from pretend British accents, I don't know where they come from but listening to the attempts gives a new meaning to a plum in the mouth accent. A better effort, much easier on the ears, some attempt to give understanding and characterisation to the stories
