A mysterious stalker is on the loose in London known only as the Goblin Man and his sights are set on a wealthy businessman, David Daniels. A horrific explosion rips through Whitechapel Underground Station and the prime suspect is a Jewish anarchist. And a Mrs. Clara Edwards is searching for her missing lover, Philias Jackson.

Eventually became Sherlock Holmes book

"Sherlock Holmes and the Scarlet Thread of Murder" (2015) by Luke Benjamen Kuhns contains three stories featuring the fictional detective. The title piece is the first and longest, with Holmes as one of several characters. Unfortunately, I had trouble keeping track of them. I enjoyed the other two stories more: Dr. Watson recounting a Holmes-Watson adventure. Kuhns captures the spirit of Arthur Conan Doyle while successfully including strong female characters. I wish he would have included some characters of color. Still, I recommend this book. Audiobook provided free in exchange for an honest review.

New Approach to Old Mysteries

Kuhns has brought us an entertaining mystery very much in the style of Conan Doyle. Sherlock Holmes and the Scarlet Thread of Murder brings us three detectives and three mysteries that all weave into weave together for a fine story.
The narration was good but when you have three story lines and characters, it requires an involved listening to keep up with the players.
The Novella and the short stories were a good read/listen and I recommend this for anyone looking for a good mystery without all the baggage that modern thrillers seem to have.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Note: When selecting books to read or listen to for reviews I try and select authors and stories that interest me. Sometimes I am fortunate and other times not so fortunate. Either way, I try to review the books with integrity
