Publisher's Summary

"Mr. Holmes is an amateur, Hopkins." Lestrade was smiling around the stem of his pipe as he spoke. Hopkins could hear it. "Not a man who works well in teams, he. He still trusts Dr. Watson not to lie to him...and Dr. Watson's pulled some whoppers to save his skinny neck in the past." Lestrade was still smiling. "Not that that's not the most interesting thing about those fellows. I could tell you some stories about them, Stanley...oh, I could tell you stories..."
Meet Sherlock Holmes through the eyes of his fellow lodger once again... and meet both through the eyes of the Yard - especially those who saw them the most: Inspectors Lestrade, Gregson, and Bradstreet. From Montague Street to a supposedly straightforward case of smuggling in Cornwall, Scotland Yard saw more than the disconcerting and dazzling private detective: it also saw an admirable and steadfast British soldier who shared their need for justice. Doctor John Watson may call himself unremarkable, but the Yard would disagree...

Great view beyond Sherlock Holmes

What made the experience of listening to You Buy Bones: Sherlock Holmes and his London Through the Eyes of Scotland Yard the most enjoyable?

This is a wonderful journey into the world around and beyond Sherlock Holmes. The story is rich with detail while it explores a mystery from the perspective of Dr. Watson and Insp. Lestrade. It is a unique perspective on the world usually only seen through Watson'c chronicles of Holmes.

What does Dominic Lopez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Well read with clear characters and an accent that is atmospheric without being distracting to my American ears.

A new twist on a familiar theme.

I will listen to this one again. The nuances that I missed, along with fun new words to research, I may even read it.

The story is good, and gets better as it goes along, finishing with excitement. The narrator is perfect for the roll.

Highly recommend this, if you love Sherlock Holmes, you should not be disappointed.
