Publisher's Summary

Lyn McConchie again carries the listener back to the Victorian London of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, this time with two beastly mysteries.
When Lord Temberton opens an Anglo-Saxon barrow and finds a securely locked Elizabethan chest with seven mummified penguins placed around it in a circle, it is to Sherlock Holmes that he turns for answers. Is this sabotage? A practical joke? Or something more sinister? Holmes, together with Watson, must unravel the journeys of an Antarctic traveler, the family history of an old lady, and discover the mind and motive behind this bizarre interment.
A 14-year-old boy is missing. Could he have run away, or is there a more dire reason for his disappearance? The lad's grandfather begs Holmes for help, but he is engaged on an urgent case for a lady of royal blood, so Holmes sends his faithful Watson in his stead. The supposedly peaceful countryside harbors a multitude of criminals, but there is no trace of the missing boy. Only Holmes can put together the clues that lead to a desperate search and a shocking revelation!

Narrator disappointing

Two Sherlock Holmes pastiche stories. For me, the narrator was very disappointing. I could not easily distinguish the characters, particularly Holmes and Watson and words were peculiarly pronounced - Marquis of Bath pronounced in the French fashion and Lowestoft with a silent 'e'. This may be picky, however, having listened to both original Sherlock Holmes stories and pastiches read wonderfully well by other actors' I was very disappointed.
