Publisher's Summary

It's a "three-pipe problem"!
Holmes and Watson are in for another rousing adventure in classic Holmesian style. They are joined by their erstwhile friend, Inspector Lestrade, and aided by the Baker Street Irregulars; Holmes' brother, Mycroft; and Mrs. Hudson, who is always there with a hot cup of tea.
Holmes and Watson are also joined by some new friends, including English royalty, the Fenians, an Indian illusionist, and the beautiful Susan Spaulding, whom Watson finds devastatingly alluring.
The game is afoot!
The riveting storytelling will keep the listener enthralled until the climactic, twist ending.

Not edge of the seat but it was fun.

I dont get moved that easily unless I am on the Tube.

Bring all the pipes you can!!!

I am a huge Holmesian, and cherish anything new that is great for perpetuating the tales of my favorite detective. This is such a story. I can see Sir Arthur stamping his seal of approval on this production, as it most certainly is worthy of his sleuthing duo. The tale has the same feel and atmosphere of one of Doyle's, and you might be hard pressed to tell the difference.

Walsh makes you feel like you are visiting 221 B for a fun afternoon. He plays both Holmes and Watson deftly, and you can feel the atmosphere of foggy London dripping off his every word. This is a fine example of a narrator who enjoys his work, and wants to share his joy with the listener.

This is a worthy addition to the Holmes cannon, and anyone who loves Sherlock will enjoy this tale.


Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

If this review helped, please press the YES below. Thank you immensely!!!

A great example of this genre

It isn't easy to write a Sherlock Holmes story Sir Auther Conan Doyle was the creator and master of the Holmes genre.
Never the less listening to this book it is easy to forget it's not by the master.
The authors have written a fantastic book which I believe easilypasses muster for Holmes fans.
Narration is excellent and sets just the right tone and feel especially to Dr Watson.
I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and voluntarily leave this review.

Highly recommended
