Any fan of the great British detective would be most pleased with this sterling presentation, ably read by David Timson. Every character, from Holmes and Watson to a German spy, a hoodlum, and Holmes's older brother, Mycroft, is clearly and cleverly defined and vocally dynamic. Each of the seven tales has its own distinct flavor and provides a colorful look at life in England between 1908 and 1914. The only problem with this audio presentation is that the stories are over too quickly, making one long to spend just a bit more time with Dr. Watson and the master of deduction.
Further adventures by the master of observation and deduction, as faithfully recounted by his companion and greatest admirer, Dr Watson. The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans, The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax and The Adventure of the Dying Detective are among the stories. David Timson's award-winning performances continue with this series.
