Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes is called in to investigate when the body of an Italian diplomat is discovered in the River Thames, his torso horrifically mutilated. Fearing the political repercussions - the diplomat being in London to initiate talks regarding a secret naval treaty between the two nations - the Government entrust Holmes with the delicate task of uncovering the truth behind the brutal murder. Events take a shocking turn, however, when a young solicitor is found slain in the East End, his body similarly mutilated.

Critic Reviews

"The most incredible one-person audio you have heard. Has to be heard to be believed. David Ian Davies creates theatre in a book." (Charles Prepolec, one of the most respected Sherlockians)
"David Ian Davies brings his remarkable vocal versatility and his talent for fast-moving drama to Daniel Ward's thriller Sherlock Holmes: The Way of All Flesh. In 1886, the murder and mutilation of an Italian diplomat suggests political skullduggery, but when a young solicitor dies a similarly horrible death, Holmes suspects something much darker. What he and Watson uncover, at great danger to the doctor, is more reminiscent of Dennis Wheatley than of Conan Doyle, but it is all very well handled, by the author and by the reader, and the narrative carries the listener giddily forward. The perpetrator of the outrages proves to be one of the less likely suspects for the Ripper murders of 1888." (Roger Johnson, Editor, The District Messenger, The Sherlock Holmes Society of London)
