The members of a collegiate club at Oxford jokingly called themselves The Seven Sinners, but 30 years later, despite having grown up to be respectable citizens, they are being murdered, each according to the manner of his particular "sin". Sherlock Holmes' brother Mycroft is one of the targets, and Holmes must race against time to find the perpetrator in this pastiche by Barry Day. Narrator David Ian Davies flexes his vocal skills to great effect, providing impeccable accents for each character. His Holmes is piercing and sharp, more scholarly than cocky, and Watson is given a charming rasp. This exciting audiobook is a treat especially for fans wishing for more Sherlock Holmes stories.

"The most incredible one-person audio you have heard. Has to be heard to be believed. David Ian Davies creates theatre in a book." (Charles Prepolec, one of the most respected Sherlockians)

"Poor substitute for the original Conan Doyle"
Not sure who would enjoy this. I purchased because l like Sherlock the original but this wasn't even close. The narration wasn't interesting nor was the story. Didn't go past the first 15 minutes.
