Audible Editor Reviews

Fans of Sherlock Holmes will feel an immediate kinship with Arthur Morrison's Martin Hewitt, another literary private investigator who charmed audiences after Holmes met his untimely death. In this series of cases, voice actor Walter Covell performs Hewitt with a genteel conviviality, making it all the more appealing as he unravels mysteries using clever theories and common sense. Hewitt's brilliance often feels planned, as his hysterical clients and some well-orchestrated "a-ha" moments leave little room but for him to be a hero - and yet, he remains a classic figure in turn-of-the-century mystery fiction.

What the Critics Say

"Martin Hewitt is a genial Sherlock Holmes, a brilliant private detective who uses logic, minute observation, and then imagination and common sense to solve an odd assortment of perplexing crimes in nineteenth century England. His clients tend to be nervous types who overreact to crises, thus allowing Hewitt to be the calming, soothing presence. Even without sound effects this presentation is excellent as Covell narrates in a superb dramatic style, with multiple vocal characterizations. This collection of notably read stories will be enjoyable fare for many." (Booklist)
