Summary

1906. HMS Dreadnaught, Britain's latest battleship, lies in her moorings in a Portsmouth dockyard awaiting her sea trials. Her design and armament renders the current warships of other nations obsolete. 

Secret items of novel yet vital radio detection equipment are stolen from her hold by agents of a foreign power. Holmes is requested by military intelligence to determine the perpetrators and trace the existence of the stolen items before they are successfully removed from the country. His investigations reveal the existence of an old and implacable enemy. Secrecy is paramount. Public knowledge of the crime would possibly result in a European war of disastrous consequences.

A good story worth a listen

The story is well written with a gripping introduction. The narrator is excellent and it was an enjoyable book. A good story worth a listen!

Horrible narration

Don’t know why I keep buying books narrated by Steve White, just not to smart I guess. His boring monotone cockney accent readings with no infliction in his voice really ruins what other wise may have been a good listen.
