From the first line of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventure of the Norwood Builder, audiobook master performer Walter Covell expertly differentiates his voice between everyone’s favorite spy, Sherlock Holmes, and everyone’s favorite spy’s assistant, Dr. Watson. In this briskly told and briskly plotted audiobook, Covell and Doyle bring the listener into the mysterious details surrounding the murder of Jonas Oldacre, the Norwood builder, and John Hector McFarlane, a lawyer with evidence stacking up against him. With plot twists and colourful characters, The Adventure of the Norwood Builder is a Sherlock Holmes classic.

Enjoyed it but...

I enjoyed this story but it really jumped to the conclusion. I couldn't follow all of the assumptions of innocence. Great narration.
