Publisher's Summary

Benedict Cumberbatch reads these four new Sherlock Holmes stories by John Taylor: 'An Inscrutable Masquerade', 'The Conundrum of Coach 13', 'The Trinity Vicarage Larceny' and 'The 10.59 Assassin'.
Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories, John Taylor has written four more mysteries featuring the world's greatest detective.
Read by acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch, these new adventures share all the suspense of the original tales.
In a drawer in his bureau, Dr. Watson keeps a locked cedarwood chest - a 'box of secrets'.
It contains an archive of notes referring to some of Holmes' cases that, for one reason or another, never saw the light of day. Now, for the first time, Watson has decided to reveal the truth to the world....
In these four thrilling stories, Holmes experiments with the science of ballistics, locates some missing gold bullion, investigates the theft of a large amount of money and solves the baffling mystery of the Stovey murder.

Benedict can read a grocery list brilliantly

Who could possibly resist listening to Mr. Cumberbatch read anything?
These stories are just so-so, but it's sheer pleasure hearing this brilliant and amazing actor!

Entertaining

Surprisingly in keeping and realistic stories, I have read some 'new' Sherlock Holmes stories which have really grated, but these short ones are very good. Benedict Cumberbatch reading is good, although could have done with slightly more variation between Holmes and Watson to tell them apart. The other characters narration was good.

Good show

Well read and the puzzle or pieces of each of these crimes is explained by Holmes as he reveals the villain, but like the train's station stops the explanations are a bit brief. I feel both Watson and I are a bit dazed. They are short, enjoyable stories for all that.
