Audible Editor Reviews

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Return of Sherlock Holmes includes 13 Sherlock adventures published at the turn of the 20th century. The first collection after Holmes' alleged death, these tales bring Holmes back, sleuthing with a vengeance. Walter Covell's voice is superbly versatile. He gives each character distinct attributes, from a husky-voiced, mysterious stranger to the deep-voiced British narrator, who speaks so smoothly it is easy to enjoy his voice for the full eleven hours. Doyle and Covell work together to make this famous collection a joy for all Sherlock fans.


What the Critics Say

"Properly suspenseful, Covell re-creates the awestruck Doctor Watson and the scientific Sherlock Holmes in another of the sleuth's escapades. Covell gives Watson a baronial English accent and renders the unerring Sherlock Holmes in a fittingly aloof, confident tone. To be led through a criminal quagmire by so expert a voice will please any...listener who likes a good mystery." (Booklist)

I've listened to many readers do Sherlock Holmes and, in my opinion, this one ( Walter Covell ) is the best. Can't wait to hear his other stuff.

A Review

Basically the stories are great but the guy that does Watson does it with a very rough voice making it very difficult to listen to on a sustained basis. If I could have heard this first I would have never bought it.
