Ok I’m an old Dungeons & Dragons geek. But this book spoke to me from the off.
Enjoyable, humorous and fast passed.
Over all too soon.

Devastating, funny, beautiful.

This book will stay with me for a long time.

One of Terry's best.

I come back to this book time and time again.

Flawlessly read by Stephen, a witty story with heart. If you haven't read/heard this story , you need to.

An engaging story well narated.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - Perhaps not as in depth and detailed as House of Silk, but nevertheless an enjoyable journey.
I must admit I sometimes find Holmes novels dry and hard work - to much meandering. This I found engaging but not taxing, a relaxing listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The story is in the first person (Frederick Chase), and he sounds real. You can imagine yourself in his shoes - no magical leaps of logic, just common sense, action and fear.

What about Julian Rhind-Tutt and Derek Jacobi ’s performance did you like?

Excellent narration, easy on the ear, easy to understand and well read.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Gently engaging - not edge of the seat gripping but always pleasant and keen to hear more,
