Summary

Sherlock Holmes thrives on danger. Sudden knife attacks, being stalked, and facing a network of assassins present little more than a cheery break in the monotony. But the enigmatic Lady Beatrice presents danger of a different kind. Is she a murderer or a potential victim? Or something even more perilous? Uncovering her secrets could change Holmes's life forever, and in ways even he cannot anticipate. The newly-discovered Holmes diaries shed light on a tale so potent, Watson was never permitted to reveal it.

Well written Holmes pastiche but oh the narrator..

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Story is good enough and is written in the first person from Holmes's point of view

What did you like best about this story?

Authentic atmosphere and a different perspective as it's written by Holmes

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Dominic Lopez?

In my opinion there is no finer narrator of Holmes than John Telfor who reads the Donald Thomas books (and the originals). I really don't know where they get these narrators, this guy cannot say his 't's so 'cottage' becomes 'coddage' etc, gets annoying.

Could you see A Biased Judgement being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

Spoilt by the narrator in my opinion.

Enjoyable listen

Good pace, loyal to the Canon, well read. Read this one you'll read the next. Enjoyed Holmes experiencing frustration in complicated casework.... no easy brilliance in this, Holmes must grind. Beatrice is the perfect intellect to capture the Holmes brother's attention. Characters are well developed.... nice job Geri ! Looking forward to a third .
