Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes lamented, "I fear that retirement will elude me." It surely does in this five-story chronicle.
The saga begins with The Bonnie Bag of Bones that lead the infamous duo on a not-so-merry chase into the mythical mountains of Scotland and ultimately to the "the woman" who is tangled within a mystery that has haunted Holmes for a quarter century.
Curse of the Black Feather continues the adventure in which Holmes teams up with the Irregulars and a gypsy matriarch, to expose a diabolical "baby-farming" enterprise. Their quest arouses a vicious adversary, Ciaran Malastier, who has Holmes struggling for his very life.
Maestro of Mysteries begins with a summons to Mycroft's office and ends with a deadly chase in Undertown, far beneath the streets of London. Malastier escapes, but only into the next adventure.
The Cure that Kills sees Holmes and Watson in hot pursuit of Ciaran Malastier, racing across America and pitting them against the largest detective organization in the world.
In the final story, The Kongo Nkis Spirit Train, Holmes and Watson travel to the Dark Continent to derail a "spirit train" that ensnares people's spirit, and enslaves their bodies. In the end, this historically accurate chronicle sheds new light on greatest mystery of all, Sherlock Holmes himself.

The Real Sherlock Holmes

What made the experience of listening to Sherlock Holmes the Golden Years the most enjoyable?

The added dimension of Sherlock Holmes as a mature person, later in his life, and the experiences that made him seem more fully human.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I can't choose, Holmes, Dr Watson, Irene Adler...

Which scene was your favorite?

I can't say!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I wanted to, but I kept falling asleep as I usually listen to my audiobooks at bed time. So I kept starting it over and finally got through it in 2 days time.

Any additional comments?

There is so much I could say but I don't like to give spoilers for the simple reason that I don't want to color anyone's experience or the impact of hearing the story first hand.

I can tell you that for me, Kim H. Krisco made Holmes come alive in a very real sense for me. I had always seen him as larger than life, and beyond the mere failings of those of us with feet of clay. Holmes has always been portrayed as so intelligent, yet without real depth of emotion, very shut off from his feelings.

For me Kim H Krisco brought Holmes to life in a very real way.

worst narrator ever

I am not sure I can get through this entire book. The narrator is so bad. the accents 4 Holmes and Watson change from English to Scottish and back. and every other character speaks with the same hesitation after each word. the only difference between the characters is the men have lower voice and the women have a little higher voice. it's extremely frustrating. the Cadence is the same. The only time Holmes and Watson sound correctly is when the narrator speeds up
