  • "I loved it!"

    Overall

    First let me say that if you dislike crude language I would avoid this book as it treats sex and prostitution quite unflinchingly and describes the world it deals with in a way that I found to be refreshing but may offend some. Normally prostitutes in fiction are depicted as "tart with a heart", sexy siren or cold hard witches. They never seem quite real but this book breathes life into the world it depicts; it evokes sights, smells and characters of this world in sometimes alarming detail. I loved the introduction, the story and the narration. It was quite wonderful

  • "Great book"

    Overall

    I normally choose unabridged titles but in this case I made an exception and I'm so glad I did! Tim Pigott-Smith's reading is brilliant; the rendintion of various accents and character deliniation are spot on. Bernard Cornwell creates a world that you want to believe in and peoples it with characters you can really care about or really hate depending on who we are taking about. This wonderful story is the second of the trillogy starting with the Winter King and ending with Excalibur. I would recomend you listen to them in order as you really do need to know the characters stories from the begining.

Included in this collection are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces - from the inaugural adventure A Study in Scarlet to timeless favorites like "The Speckled Band" and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.

    Mildred Lathbury is one of those 'excellent women' who is often taken for granted. She is a godsend, 'capable of dealing with most of the stock situations of life - birth, marriage, death, the successful jumble sales, the garden fete spoilt by bad weather'. As such, she often gets herself embroiled in other people's lives - especially those of her glamorous new neighbours, the Napiers, whose marriage seems to be on the rocks.
