An Inscrutable Masquerade', 'The Conundrum of Coach 13', 'The Trinity Vicarage Larceny', and 'The 10.59 Assassin'. Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories, John Taylor has written four more mysteries featuring the world's greatest detective. Read by acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch, these new adventures share all the suspense of the original tales.
In a drawer in his bureau, Dr Watson keeps a locked cedar wood chest - a 'box of secrets'. It contains an archive of notes referring to some of Holmes' cases that, for one reason or another, never saw the light of day. Now, for the first time, Watson has decided to reveal the truth to the world... In these four thrilling stories, Holmes experiments with the science of ballistics, locates some missing gold bullion, investigates the theft of a large amount of money and solves the baffling mystery of the Stovey murder.

"Nicely written and wonderfully read"
These are not original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle short stories, but they are definitely Sherlock Holmes!!
These stories are all themed around mysteries surrounding trains. Succinct and to the point and all of them brain teasers.
Of course the novels are enhanced by Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the most amazing 21st Century Sherlock on BBC1. However, he narrates these stories in the vein of the era in which they portray and not in the fast paced, frenetic style of his TV character.
I highly recommend it.
"A good Conan Doyle copy"
There are simply oddles of Conan Doyle type Sherlock Holmes stories out there and some are better than this audio book but most are not. I found most of the listening easy going and certainly in the vein of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I am sure other ladies will enjoy listening to Benedict Cumberbatch narrating these 4 stories. He spoke in RP through to West Country and was exceptional. An enjoyable listen for Sherlock Holmes fans.
Loved this collection of stories however the narrator made the experience complete benedict is Sherlock now but is is also a true
story teller in his own right
