Audible Editor Reviews

The nostalgic anthology Sherlock Holmes in America gives some of America’s best mystery writers a chance to imagine the famous sleuth at work across the pond. The 14 stories here are in chronological order, and are set in various regional pockets. The stylish and diffident Holmes crosses the Atlantic. His celebrity precedes him. As happens back home, his clients range from the obscure to the famous. Holmes retains his uncanny powers of deduction, and manages to solve tricky and dangerous interpersonal puzzles. The writers included here conjure Holmes and Watson without distortion, and thrust the ultra-civilized duo in conflict with purely American villains. The stories have local flavor and American upstart ruggedness. Graeme Malcolm narrates in a tone filled with irony and energetic wit.
