Summary

This compilation, comprising a Baker's (Street) Dozen of his adventures, re-creates the gas-lit, fog-enshrouded world of Victorian London as once more Sherlock Holmes urges, 'Come, Watson, the game is afoot!'

Good stories

I'm a bit Sherlock obsessed since reading the originals many years ago and always hunting out new stories. Thoroughly enjoyed these, neat solutions and well narrated although occasionally Holmes character delivery went a bit William Shatner.

Series of pastiches are improving!

This latest Gerard Kelly pastiche collection is showing signs of great improvement. Although no non-Canonical work will ever match the original ACD stories, this trove of delights moves closer than many other stories written in the style of Doyle. My one complaint, again, is the voice Simon Shepherd chooses when he reads the Holmes' lines. His Watson and every other character is spot-on. His Holmes is too thin and reedy-sounding. The only real flaw in an otherwise excellent book.

Fantastic stories

This book was one of those that made me sad when it ended. I highly recommend it if you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes. Of all the pastiche books I have read, this is by far one of the best. The author presents clever mysteries, and writes in a style that is both similar to the Canon, while maintaining a sensitivity and style that was a joy to listen to.

Voice of Holmes

Voice of Holmes is real pathetic. I just cannot believe such a voice would be allowed.
