Publisher's Summary

This follow-up to the national best seller A Study in Sherlock is a stunning new volume of original stories compiled by award-winning Sherlockians Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger.
The Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were recently voted the top mystery series of all time, and they have enthralled generations of readers - and writers.
Now, Laurie R. King, author of the New York Times best-selling Mary Russell series in which Holmes plays a costarring role, and Leslie S. Klinger, Edgar Award - winning editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, have assembled a stellar group of contemporary authors from a variety of genres and asked them to create new stories inspired by that canon. Authors included here are Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Michael Dirda, Harlan Ellison, Denise Hamilton, Nancy Holder, John Lescroart, Sara Paretsky, Michael Sims, and more.
Inside you'll find Holmes in times and places previously unimagined, as well as characters who have themselves been affected by the tales of Sherlock Holmes. The game is afoot - again!

not made for listening

This compilation rarely features the original Sherlock character, vs an updated or spin off adaptation. Some stories, like the script/play complete with scene direction and cues like "Sherlock Holmes doesn't like this" before each line, were not made to be read out loud in novel form. I enjoyed perhaps two of the stories. The best being Silver Blaze from the horse's POV. Yes, the most enjoyable story was featuring a horse narrator.

It will put you to sleep

What would have made In the Company of Sherlock Holmes better?

I love Sherlock Holmes and was excited to get this book but then I could not finish the book. The narrator was terrible and did not hold my interest. If it had been narrated in a different manner the story line would have been good.


Would you be willing to try another book from Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger ? Why or why not?

Not unless it was narrated with more enthusiasim


How could the performance have been better?

. See above.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Story line was good if you were reading the book. However, narration plays a big the biggest part when I am listening to audio books and this was terible.
