From the author of The Cotswolds Werewolf comes a new collection of Sherlock Holmes pastiches in the vein of Conan Doyle, revealing for the first time the secrets behind the theft of the hobnailed boots, the mysterious madness of the Right Honourable Wilfred Crabb, the case of the haunted public house, the curious and seemingly supernatural events surrounding a remote hotel on the east coast, and the truth behind the strange disappearance of Cyrus Thicknesse, the man in the sensible necktie. "I must say, Holmes, I am a bit surprised to see you taking an interest in something based on sympathy." "You do not think me sympathetic?" "Of course I do. But you have said yourself that it is the rational challenge and not the human aspect that draws you to your cases. Humans are mere factors in a problem, I think were your words." "Did I really say that? Hm, well, I am an odd sort, am I not?"

"The Voice of Failure"
The story itself is very enjoyable. I enjoy many of the new Sherlock Holmes stories that follow the best of the original.
It is the voice used for Sherlock Holmes that kills the performance. That voice mumbles and is so horrible I had real problems understanding his words.
Watson,s voice blared loudly, many other characters to quite, and Holmes was so low and such a mumble that you could not hear or understand anything he said most of the time. The stories I think would have been fun, if not for the absolutely miserable narration. Save your money, you will not be able to follow the stories.
