Publisher's Summary

Benedict Cumberbatch reads these four new Sherlock Holmes stories by John Taylor: "An Inscrutable Masquerade", "The Conundrum of Coach 13", "The Trinity Vicarage Larceny" and "The 10.59 Assassin".
Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories, John Taylor has written four more mysteries featuring the world's greatest detective.
Read by acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch, these new adventures share all the suspense of the original tales.
In a drawer in his bureau, Dr. Watson keeps a locked cedarwood chest - a 'box of secrets'.
It contains an archive of notes referring to some of Holmes' cases that, for one reason or another, never saw the light of day. Now, for the first time, Watson has decided to reveal the truth to the world....
In these four thrilling stories, Holmes experiments with the science of ballistics, locates some missing gold bullion, investigates the theft of a large amount of money and solves the baffling mystery of the Stovey murder.

Surprisingly in keeping and realistic stories, I have read some 'new' Sherlock Holmes stories which have really grated, but these short ones are very good. Benedict Cumberbatch reading is good, although could have done with slightly more variation between Holmes and Watson to tell them apart. The other characters narration was good.

Average stories, good narration but really too short for the price. I found two of the four stories too simple, one other two unbelievable and the other worthy of Sherlock Holmes. Good narration by Benedict Cumberbatch with distinctive character voices.
