Audible Editor Reviews

If you had to solve a particularly perplexing crime in the late Victorian age, who would you choose as your model detective? Sherlock Holmes, with his magnifying glass and opium habit? Sir Percy Blakeney, with his impenetrably secret identity? How about Augustus S. F. X Van Dusen, otherwise known as "The Thinking Machine"?
Try out their styles and many more in this classic compendium of short stories from the early masters of detective fiction. Each story is faithfully performed by a unique voice, giving the listener over 12 hours of exciting and stylistically varied whodunits.

Mixed bag

The stories range from outstanding to jut OK. The narration ranges from very good to very bad. This collection is worth the credit. If you're on one you don't like, hang in there. There are some not to be missed.
