For Holmes Sake
The talented reader added the right amount of western tones to this well written mystery. The ending was unexpected but completely reasonable. There is a lot of "deducifying" done by the Holmes on the range using skills we have had a chance to hone on our own readings of the Canon.
A very enjoyable read.

What a fun listen this was!
I was looking for a new genre and found myself downloading this, although westerns don't usually grab my interest and I've never read a Sherlock Holmes book. I'm certainly glad to have found this series! I loved the story--not too much of a mystery to confuse the daylights out of me; enough western to give it a bunkhouse flavor, and colorful characters abound. The author's pace is perfect.
Certainly, the reader has done a brilliant job of things. If you go into this realizing it's read like a vaudville play, you'll get great pleasure from the listening.
I'm off to download the next in the series now...
