Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes is bored between cases at 221B Baker Street. So when King Oskar II of Sweden - who has heard of the discovery of the Kensington Runestone by a farmer in Minnesota - asks to engage his services, Holmes jumps at the chance to decipher the runes and determine whether the find is real or a hoax. With Dr. John H. Watson by his side, faithfully recording every detail, Holmes makes his way to Minnesota for a third time. But, in the first of many strange and unfortunate coincidences, the farmer who found the mysterious stone is murdered, and the stone itself is stolen on the day the famous detective arrives.
With the help of one Shadwell Rafferty, now a friend and partner, Holmes must solve this baffling case to find both the stone and the murderer.

Would you consider the audio edition of Sherlock Holmes and the Rune Stone Mystery to be better than the print version?

Haven't had the pleasure to read the Kindle or Print version. There are a lot of locales, names that may be more discernable in those formats. Thus the title for my review. lol!


Who was your favorite character and why?

Well, Holmes and Watson, but the whirling cast of locals are a hoot!!!


What about Steve Hendrickson’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed the performance by Steve Hendrickson. I laughed out loud of his portrayal of character named Larson. I waited for him to utter something along the lines "Well, Pilgrim".


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh. The situations peculiar to the region are realistic. The historic and geographic references, walk on parts of famous people relevant to the time frame were fun for this listener!


Any additional comments?

Stone Cold Crazy

This is the 3rd in the Sherlock in Minnesota series.  I have read (listened) to all 3.  Millett has done a good job capturing the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle feel but throwing in some American flair.  

Sherlock and John are called back to the great northern state of Minnesota when a representative of the King of Sweden stops in to ask for help with a Rune Stone.  Once arriving they jump right into a murder scene.  Lucky for them Shadwell Rafferty is back to help the m in one of the hardest cases of their careers.  Sherlock is sure the Rune Stone is a fake, but being as everyone who seems to know where the stone is kept turning up dead and they have a tough time tracking it down.
