Master storyteller Lyn McConchie returns with two tantalizing tales for Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. This time our heroes must dig deep to unearth long-buried family secrets in Familiar Crimes.
When Bradon Riggston decides to write his family history, he is shocked to find that many of his relatives and their friends have died by unfortunate accidents. Are Riggston family members and their close associates just unlucky, or is there some sinister power working behind the scenes? Holmes and Watson are called in to investigate, only to uncover a deadly saga of revenge for long-hidden crimes.
A terrible fire burns Miss Darna Rosewarne's home for elderly ladies to the ground, leaving six residents dead. Local opinion blames her for negligence, but as Holmes and Watson sift through the charred ruins and scrutinize the residents and staff, they discover hidden secrets of both the living and the dead - but which one is the motive for murder?

Good stories odd narrator
Two well written stories, but narrator sounded robotic
On balance still worth getting
- Derek S.
Could have been good
Not so much a performance, just a rather stilted, disjointed reading of the text. The reader attempts different accents for the voices but the overall effect is expressionless and hard work to follow. More like an amateur Librivox reading than the professional one I'd expect from Audible. The two stories are pretty complex with many characters and involved links between them which I found hard to follow. Needs a better reader and an easier to follow plot. Disappointing.

The narrator was the best part of this book. The story was obvious and bogged down in too many names and family relationships to be interesting. All in all if not for John Kuzminski I wouldn't have finished this book.
