"Since he received an Audie nomination for Volume I and an Audie Award for Volume II, it’s not surprising that Charlton Griffin gives another extraordinary performance in this volume of Sherlock Holmes works. In addition to impeccable interpretations of familiar characters - Holmes, Watson, Mycroft, and Lestrade - Griffin creates remarkably believable women. Griffin’s narration is fresh, flawless, and completely winning." (AudioFile magazine)

Having the right person reading it.
I cannot fathom why an American actor would be chosen to read such a quintessentially British book. Don't get me wrong, he has a lovely voice and makes a valiant effort at an English accent, but that doesn't help if you still use American pronunciation, e.g. on words like 'lever', 'depot', 'Cecil' and he's obviously not familiar with British place names as many of those have been pronounced incorrectly too. Worst of all something weird happens with the 'O' vowels in places so 'Holmes' has mutated into 'Hormes' and 'dog' into 'dawg'. Really, really disappointed because I love Sherlock stories.
very poor narration
love the author but the narrator is terrible
this narrator speeds through the text like a runaway train, he reads far too fast and the story is impossible to listen to, very disappointed. The narrator is supposed to be a professional, but he hardly pauses to breathe. I tried to listen on 0.75 speed but this simply distorted the audio. can I have my credit back please?
