In "The Final Problem", perhaps the greatest of the short stories of Sherlock Holmes, the English detective encounters his most formidable rival, Professor Moriarty. 'The Napoleon of Crime' is how Holmes describes his adversary to his faithful companion, Dr Watson, as they move to the ultimate confrontation at the Reichenbach Falls. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
David Timson's experienced treatment of Holmes makes listening to these final exploits a pleasure. His restrained and mannered acting allows the text to shine through, and this is vital as we hear what may be the end of Sherlock Holmes. If you're expecting Basil Rathbone or Jeremy Brett, don't - expect instead Conan Doyle's beloved prose in the aural equivalent of a smooth merlot. These stories capture the spirit of the age, a time when people rested for months after a nasty emotional shock, of which there are plenty here.
