Publisher's Summary

London 1900 and Sherlock Holmes finds himself investigating a string of murders that have one common thread -- each of them recalls one of his earlier cases. Has that great mind finally cracked - Watson wonders - and how is all this connected to Britain's latest secret weapon and the doings of the enigmatic Graf von Bork and the mysterious Society for Anglo-German Solidarity?

Audible Editor Reviews

In Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders, grandfatherly British narrator David Ian Davies ably performs the role of the iconic fictional detective and his famous partner, Dr. Watson, and deftly transports the listener back in time to the foggy streets of turn-of-the-century London. There, a series of gruesome murders with a similar modus operandi all attempt to frame none other than Holmes himself!
It is yet another riddle-wrapped-within-an-enigma case for our Sherlock to somehow crack and solve. But this time, it’s personal.

What the Critics Say

"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)

What did you like best about Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders? What did you like least?

I the narrator voices I found quite polished. While not English myself I have both English family and friends who are Londoners and thought the accents were fine. His skills were the most impressive part of the show.


The story foreshadowing was so heavy handed even the good inspector would have know what was going on from the first 10 mins much less Mycroft or Watson.



Has Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all into every life etc....


Which scene was your favorite?

No scene but the voices of Sherlock (think Peter Cushing) and Watson were very good if not expected.


Could you see Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not without complete rewrite.

C+ Version of Sherlock

Not my #1 choice mostly due to the horrible accents, but better than some of the others.
