Editorial Reviews

In Barry Day's mystery Sherlock Holmes and the Shakespeare Globe Murders, an American businessman rebuilds the Globe, in 1899 London, to much fanfare. But when the Globe's actors begin to fall victim to murder, each in the manner of a death in a Shakespearean play, Holmes and Watson step in to investigate - the stakes dramatically rising when Queen Victoria becomes a target. A virtuoso performance from David Ian Davies adds intrigue and excitement to the story, with Davies providing unique voices and accents for different characters.

Publisher's Summary

London 1899 and a matter of grave national importance. American impresario Florenz Adler, has rebuilt Shakespeare's Globe playhouse. The grand opening is to take place in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. Amid the excitement, the actors receive sinister warnings in the form of cryptic quotations from Shakespeare's plays and a drawing of a rose. A hoax? A literary joke? But not for long - the joke turns sour as the murders begin, each an exact copy of a death in a Shakespeare play. Even the Queen receives a warning, and so Sherlock Holmes is called in to fathom out the plot - assisted, of course, by Dr. Watson.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Look for better options elsewhere

Annoying reading style, choppy. At points I wondered if performer was severely asthmatic. Too many comma insertions in the text. Too many modern anachronisms. Plot point based on something that didn't happen for 25years after the story timeline. Then, unforgivable to me, rehash of Conan Doyle plot points and phrases. Not homages, outright copy. Glad it was extra cheap on sale.

Much better done than you'd think for the price

The narrator does a much better job than the sampling shows, and the writer does an entertaining and competent job on the story. It would be a bargain at twice the asking price.

Let down by poor production

Unfortunately I purchased two audiobooks together. The story is interesting but the production is poor. Towards the end of the story the audio appears to jump and repeat. The narration is at times also tedious with some rather bizarre effects and what sounds like post-editing dubbing as voices would often change between sentences.
