DR. WATSON CONSTANTLY TELLING HOLMES TO BE QUIET AND WHAT TO DO. NARRATOR WAS TERRIBLE, WATSONS VOICE WAS FINE BUT HOLMES SOUNDED LIKE A SQUEAKY MOUSE OR A WOMAN. SAVE YOU $$$$, PASS ON THIS ONE. VERY SLOW AND BORING.

A creative story with a nice blend of historical characters and events wrapping up with 21st century ideas. I thought it was brilliant to include the French criminal Vidocq without mentioning that he went on to be one of the fathers of the French Surete. Just a fun read.
Excellent story, was compelled to listen to the whole thing in a few short hours. Holmes and Watson are authentic and familiar and the atmosphere is straight out of The Strand. Any Holmes fan will be hooked. The reader is excellent, versatile and the delivery is sharp. He does sound a little like CP3O at times and should be a shoe in for that role should Anthony Daniels ever vacate it! Thoroughly recommended.

this author makes a fair effort but fails to appreciate the wit of the original. the Watson character has far too much whimsy, constantly padding out the story with descriptions of room clothes etc. And Holmes hardly gets a look in. I will be returning this one.
