Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Cotswolds Werewolf comes a new collection of Sherlock Holmes pastiches in the vein of Conan Doyle, revealing for the first time the secrets behind the theft of the hobnailed boots, the mysterious madness of the Right Honourable Wilfred Crabb, the case of the haunted public house, the curious and seemingly supernatural events surrounding a remote hotel on the east coast, and the truth behind the strange disappearance of Cyrus Thicknesse, the man in the sensible necktie. "I must say, Holmes, I am a bit surprised to see you taking an interest in something based on sympathy." "You do not think me sympathetic?" "Of course I do. But you have said yourself that it is the rational challenge and not the human aspect that draws you to your cases. Humans are mere factors in a problem, I think were your words." "Did I really say that? Hm, well, I am an odd sort, am I not?"

Average to good stories...But

Narrator speaks well except for Holmes' voice . He lowers the pitch of his voice which is fine, unfortunately, he also lowers the volume of his voice as well. The only way to hear the stories clearly is to up the volume on your machine. Meaning the other characters voices are a bit loud. Note: there is to a low level knocking sound that seems to be caused by the transfer of the stories from tapes. This is only heard when the sound is turned up. Actually, it is easily ignored as you get caught up in the stories.

The Voice of Failure

The story itself is very enjoyable. I enjoy many of the new Sherlock Holmes stories that follow the best of the original.

It is the voice used for Sherlock Holmes that kills the performance. That voice mumbles and is so horrible I had real problems understanding his words.
