Summary

This follow-up to the national best seller A Study in Sherlock is a stunning new volume of original stories compiled by award-winning Sherlockians Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger.
The Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were recently voted the top mystery series of all time, and they have enthralled generations of readers - and writers.
Now, Laurie R. King, author of the New York Times best-selling Mary Russell series in which Holmes plays a costarring role, and Leslie S. Klinger, Edgar Award - winning editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, have assembled a stellar group of contemporary authors from a variety of genres and asked them to create new stories inspired by that canon. Authors included here are Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Michael Dirda, Harlan Ellison, Denise Hamilton, Nancy Holder, John Lescroart, Sara Paretsky, Michael Sims, and more.
Inside you'll find Holmes in times and places previously unimagined, as well as characters who have themselves been affected by the tales of Sherlock Holmes. The game is afoot - again!

absolute travesty of Holmes

What would have made In the Company of Sherlock Holmes better?

I was so looking forward to listening to this what a major let down there is nothing about Sherlock at all. This was a horrible audio book do not waste your money getting this.

What was most disappointing about Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger ’s story?

And
There was nothing about the sherlock Holmes that was at all recognisable.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Off putting definitely the Sarah peretsky

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from In the Company of Sherlock Holmes?

All of them

Any additional comments?

Nothing you could print

Where is Sherlock

Nothing Sherlockian about this book other than the use of names and a couple of rehashing of original stories. These cannot be considered as sherlock stories, but rather a school exercise. Not much can be added about the quality of the narrators. One GOOD narrator when have improved it. May be more acceptable to the American reader.

not made for listening

This compilation rarely features the original Sherlock character, vs an updated or spin off adaptation. Some stories, like the script/play complete with scene direction and cues like "Sherlock Holmes doesn't like this" before each line, were not made to be read out loud in novel form. I enjoyed perhaps two of the stories. The best being Silver Blaze from the horse's POV. Yes, the most enjoyable story was featuring a horse narrator.

So proud of the Authors tribute to Doyle!

A fitting tribute to Arthur Conan Doyle. Each reader expressed their own spin on the mysteriously familiar Sherlock character in their own carefully crafted way. Pleasure listening to exciting wordsmiths each.
