  • (5/5)
    I have loved the stories and books about Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick,
    Dr. Watson, since I was in junior high school. It continues to this day! Sir A. Conan Doyle could sure pen “Who did it...and why?” mysteries. I still love them!
  • (4/5)
    The narration was dramatic and well performed. I will likely listen to it many times over.
  • (2/5)
    I can hardly believe this is a real Sherlock Holmes story. SH stories can be far-fetched, with characters and situations that, to say the least, lack credulity. But they’re interesting and even sympathetic. In this story, even Holmes himself is flat. There are lots and lots of good Holmes stories read well, notably the Stephen Fry collection published recently. Don’t bother with this one.
