In the eerie wasteland of Dartmoor, Sherlock Holmes summons his devoted wife and partner, Mary Russell, from her studies at Oxford to aid the investigation of a death and some disturbing phenomena of a decidedly supernatural origin. Through the mists of the moor there have been sightings of a spectral coach made of bones carrying a woman long-ago accused of murdering her husband - and of a hound with a single glowing eye.
Returning to the scene of one of his most celebrated cases, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Holmes and Russell investigate a mystery darker and more unforgiving than the moors themselves.

I loved this story. First off, I have to say that Jenny Sterlin is the best narrator I've ever had the chance to listen to. She is at her absolute best in this novel. Honestly, I couldn't ask for more and would even go as far as to buy books just because she is reading them....
With all that aside the story is really great. It has a good, involved plot that pulls you along. I wouldn't go as far as to say there was suspense at every turn, but it was still a great story. I have listened to this three times back to back. I just can't seem to get enough.
The tales use of Hound of the Baskervilles as a backstory really connects it to the best of Conan Doyle as well.
The characters are wonderful,
The story is well thought out and rich,
Jenny is not just a narrator here, but the breathing equivalent of Mary Russell which makes it seem more like she is recalling the past rather than reading a book. Her different accents are incredible, my favorite parts.
I can't think of any way to improve things,,, even the length was spot on
Too difficult to pick just one
The scene where Sherlock and Mary first interact with an older resident of the moor, and he's called by his nickname.
Yes and no. It was one I wanted to listen to, but also wanted to savor as long as possible to keep it from ending.
The best series
