Summary

Six new tales of crime presented by Dr Watson from the documents of Sherlock Holmes, which follow on from The Secret Cases of Sherlock Holmes. What were Holmes's views on Dr Crippen? What happened when Oscar Wilde visited Baker Street to seek advice? How did Holmes reveal a loving husband to be one of the most dangerous psychopaths of modern times? And just what horrors await Holmes in the darkened slums of Waterloo Road?

Relating Holmes's part in real-life crimes of the day, Donald Thomas brings the Great Detective to life once again, displaying Holmes at his most determined, inventive and downright devious.

Well worth a listen

This author has picked up the Conan Doyle baton excellently. Good stories - very enjoyable and well read. As a Sherlock Holmes fan I was apprehensive of this book - but absolutely no regrets.

Hard to distinguish from Conan Doyle

This was my first Donald Thomas book and it fits in very well with everything Conan Doyle wrote. Different stories unfold, all very good and all of which sustained my interest until the end. The narrator reads it really well as well. I'd definitely recommend this to Sherlock or classic detective fans.

Dull and droning

From all the Sherlock Holmes on audible this must be the worst, dull, monotone, dreary.
