Summary

In fog-enshrouded Victorian London, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson soon become entangled in a deadly web of intrigue and cryptic clues.

Who is the silver-caned shadowy stranger? Is Euclid's College lecturer John Kindred really in danger? And what is the connection to the fabled and priceless emerald, the Egyptian Sepulchre?

Holmes slowly suspects that the answers may lie behind a quite extraordinary equation.

Over the top.

Not the best Sherlock Homes I have ever heard and the upper class accent was really phoney.

One of the four new classic scripts in the world of Holmes

Ian shimwell has written four new classic scripts in the world of Holmes and Watson. They are available individually and also now as a completed volume. I grew up with a love for the old basil rathbone and Nigel Bruce black and white Holmes movies. This story is written and performed in that same spirit. Truly a wonderful addition to any Holmes fans collections. Highly recommended. The narrators deliver that old time movie/radio show feel. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Delightful Play Performance

Written in the style of the Basil Rathbone's "Sherlock" & Nigel Bruce "Watson." This was a unique take on the Sherlock theme. However, I'm less a fan of the bumbling Watson this play and Nigel portrays and much prefer the highly intelligent, and best friend of Sherlock that the Conan novels show us.

This play is a very quick listen on Audible. And was fantastically narrated. It’s like an old time radio show.

Mixed feelings on this story

while the overall story wasn't bad. The protrayal of Watson needs work and an audio book as a script feels jarring to listen too at points
