Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are called in on the murder of a wealthy English country squire. The deductive powers of Sherlock Holmes are on full display as he flushes the killer from a group of suspects with perfect alibis.
This is a short story typical of the Holmes tales and is 10,000 words in length.

Has promise, but ...

First of all, many listeners will find the American narrator's voice a complete deal-breaker; however, that wasn't a problem for me. I did notice at one point Holmes calling their young female client "My dear", something ACD's Holmes would never have done. The story itself was okay, though as others have mentioned, brief with a beginning and end, but no real middle section. So, I'm open to reading another, but not in any hurry at all about doing so.

A Fine Sherlock Holmes Pastiche

I was pleased by how well & how often this story reminded me of Arthur Conan Doyle's style of writing his Sherlock Holmes stories.
