Publisher's Summary

These six cases are among the last undertaken by Sherlock Holmes before he retired to the Sussex downs. However, the problems facing the sleuth are as diverse and challenging as ever. What with seeking the whereabouts of the stolen Mazarin Diamond, discovering the importance of being called Garrideb, encountering a mysterious murder on Thor Bridge, searching for eternal youth and the threat of a vampire in Sussex, there is no sign of Holmes' deductive powers slowing down.

Audible Editor Reviews

David Timson as Dr. Watson is as perfect a narrator as the listener could hope for. His light British accent makes for exceptional diction, while his superb acting provides appropriate pacing, pauses, and vocal fluidity. Each of his character voices is completely separate from the others, and when Holmes and Watson have a dialogue, it's as if two different men are speaking and you have the pleasure of eavesdropping. A superb production, masterfully acted, this first volume in the series recounts cases that were among the last Holmes took on before his retirement.

Not Doyle's best

I have all of the Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes storys on my ipod now and I must say that this series of storys is my least favorite. Don't get me wrong, compaired to a lot of books this is still very good but I don't think that Doyle is quiet on the money in this case.

As for the reader, he is good without being anything special.

Over all a good book and reader but not quite up to the usual standards of Holmes and Watson.
