On the most secret and dangerous assignment of their lives, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are sent into the newborn Soviet Union to rescue the Romanovs: Nicholas and Alexandra and their innocent children. Will Holmes and Watson be able to change history? Will they even be able to survive?
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Holmes, or anyone who enjoys a mystery.
What about Simon Shepherd’s performance did you like?
Simon Shepherd's performance was great. Very credible. Very much as we would expect A story about the great Holmes to be read.
Any additional comments?
I listened to the start a few times before I could kick the idea that this wasn't written by Sir Arthur, then I took the plunge!
Once I did I found it very enjoyable, written in a style that so easily could have been the work of a modern Sir Arthur.
Please try it for yourselves, you will find it worth while.
