Only Holmes and Watson can get to the bottom of this baffling murder mystery. John Douglas is found in his study, blasted faceless by a sawed-off shotgun. There is no obvious motive or suspect. Douglas and his wife, Ivy, a rich and locally popular couple, have lived for years in the ancient, moated Birlstone Manor House. Despite Douglas' nightly ritual of raising the drawbridge, the perpetrator had somehow concealed himself, shot Douglas, and made a clean getaway. Does the mystery have something to do with the "interesting" relationship between Cecil Baker, Douglas' only friend from his obscure past, and the surprisingly merry widow? There are plenty of clues, including a brand mark on the deceased's arm and the fact that his wedding ring is missing, but not the ring that he always wore above it.More

Worst reading EVER!!!
NOBODY would enjoy this.
There were none.
His reading was terrible. The "accent" he used was sooo false and affected-sounding, it completely took away from the most excellent Sherlock Holmes story.
I would never allow this narrator to read a Sherlock Holmes story.

Sometimes the narrator is enough
