Publisher's Summary

Sir Ian McKellen was the winner of the BBC Audio Drama Award 2015 for Best Actor in an Audio Drama (for Eugenie Grandet)
Sir Ian McKellen reads The Valley of Fear, the last of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's four Sherlock Holmes novels.
The mystery begins with a coded warning of imminent danger, drawing the illustrious Sherlock Holmes and the faithful Dr. Watson to a secluded English country home. A trail of bewildering clues leads to sleuthing in the finest Holmesian tradition and the gripping backstory of a cult that terrorized a valley in the American West.
First broadcast as Book at Bedtime on BBC Radio 4.

Loved it

Not my favorite Holmes story overall, but a really nice performance by Ian McKellan. I don't regret purchasing this one at all!

Not my favourite but great performance

Would you consider the audio edition of Sherlock Holmes: Valley of Fear to be better than the print version?

Yes, for sure.

Would you recommend Sherlock Holmes: Valley of Fear to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, it is more engaging in an audiobook format

Which character – as performed by Ian McKellan – was your favorite?

He didn't do much in terms of distinctive voices, but probably Sherlock Holmes himself.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and no. It is very easy to listen to, but the second half was just a bit too long.
