Publisher's Summary

London 1900 and Sherlock Holmes finds himself investigating a string of murders that have one common thread -- each of them recalls one of his earlier cases. Has that great mind finally cracked - Watson wonders - and how is all this connected to Britain's latest secret weapon and the doings of the enigmatic Graf von Bork and the mysterious Society for Anglo-German Solidarity?

Audible Editor Reviews

In Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders, grandfatherly British narrator David Ian Davies ably performs the role of the iconic fictional detective and his famous partner, Dr. Watson, and deftly transports the listener back in time to the foggy streets of turn-of-the-century London. There, a series of gruesome murders with a similar modus operandi all attempt to frame none other than Holmes himself!
It is yet another riddle-wrapped-within-an-enigma case for our Sherlock to somehow crack and solve. But this time, it's personal.

What the Critics Say

"The most incredible one-person audio you have heard. Has to be heard to be believed. David Ian Davies creates theatre in a book." (Charles Prepolec, one of the most respected Sherlockians)

Interesting story but Poor production

The story itself was an interesting concept which was spoilt by poor production. The narration at times seemed unbelievable fast, barely pausing between sentences or chapters. There were also several instances of cringe worthy "effects" or simulated laughter which were in themselves just amusing. My main bug bear with this audiobook was the random pauses of 3 or 4 seconds that seemed to occur during the dialog.

If available as a book buy that instead of this audiobook.
