I seldomly read fiction books ; However, I stumbled upon one of the Author's books of Holmes short stories, that were very well done, so I decided to read one of the new full lenght novels. After completing the reading of this book, I knew that I had made a good decision. After starting the book, I found it nearly impossible to stop listening and go off to other things. This book allows Dr. Watson to have a role in the story, other than being Holmes story teller , companion, and water carrier. Holmes comes across in a more human role, while maintaining his feeling of superiority and demonstrating the arrogance he has always possessed. I am going to purchase the Other holmes books written by this author as an addition for my library.

A long time a go I read a collection of Sherlock Holmes mysteries in a big hard cover book that I borrowed from the library of my Great Aunt. I am sure that it was a first edition but where it is now I have no idea. I remember being riveted with the action and confounded by the mystery and amazed at Sherlock's observations.
I was no less riveted, confounded and amazed by this book. I can highly recommend it and plan to read more modern interpretations of Sherlock Holmes mysteries. They appeal to my gothic nature without the need of zombies and the like.

Would you try another book written by Donald Thomas or narrated by John Telfer?
What was most disappointing about Donald Thomas’s story?
It was a dreary account of the horrors of of bygone wars and just went on and on about it, boring and unpleasant. I didn't read the book to read a war story.
