Simon Jones as ever is terrifically entertaining, with perfectly timed dry English comic wit and delivery; supported by a cast equally (or exceedingly) zany and the mad genius Dirk Maggs who paints a lush sonic madhouse tied together with a few inexplicable mysteries and ne'er do wells. I don't know much of the history of the Sexton Blake character, but this revival will have you hooked and eager for more audio adventures!

What other book might you compare The Adventures of Sexton Blake to and why?
It has the same feeling of utter (and entertaining) madness as the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy.

Hilarious and brilliant story and a rip roaring adventure that doesn't let up in it's pace!
What made the experience of listening to The Adventures of Sexton Blake the most enjoyable?
Was such a joy to listen to, the characters were interesting, the voice actors were fantastic and I really loved the sound effects - I felt like I was in the story as it was unfolding. Plus it was very funny.
What did you like best about this story?
Everything about the story was enjoyable and fun. So much excitement from the thrilling cases that have to be solved to the dangerous chases and fights. Like Sherlock Holmes meets Dick Tracey.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?
It's hard to choose which one as all the actors did a great job at portraying the character. But the main character, Sexton Blake was my favorite. The choice of casting for the voice was amazing, managed to really pull off a convincing role.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I have done, whilst traveling, specially on a long flight. Because it was a dramatization I really felt captivated by the whole story, that I was hard to press the stop button.
Any additional comments?
Dirk Maggs is probably the greatest producer of audio dramatizations, ever!
