I could not be more pleased with this story. I'm a huge Sherlock Holmes fan and I was not disappointed at all! The narrator was absolutely incredible and I will definitely look for other stories voiced by him!

What disappointed you about Moriarty?
The story was fairly predictable and the American Pinkerton agent was a joke in every respect. His accent varied between that of a New York street thug and a Boston tough guy. Neither of which made any sense given his middle to upper class background. In addition, the street-wise accent was in complete contrast to the stiff, formal dialog written for this character (I don't think he used a single contraction in the entire book). The author continually came up with bizarre/flowery vocabulary or phrases that would never be associated with a New York detective (high class or low brow). Last but not least, Inspector Jones continually tells Chase how much he values his help in the investigation. However, other than loyalty, I can't think of much that Chase actually contributed to the process. He simply seemed to be along for the ride. All of the incongruities in this key character made the book extremely difficult to listen to and impossible to enjoy.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The American accents and pronunciations were not up to par.
