I enjoyed this book even more than the author's earlier Cotswold Werewolf. A very convincing recreation of Conan Doyle's style. These are generally "locked room" style crimes which are solved logically but with some good little twists.
Nigel Peever reads with a remarkable range of voices and gets the slightly
melodramatic Edwardian feel just right.
Narrator speaks well except for Holmes' voice . He lowers the pitch of his voice which is fine, unfortunately, he also lowers the volume of his voice as well. The only way to hear the stories clearly is to up the volume on your machine. Meaning the other characters voices are a bit loud. Note: there is to a low level knocking sound that seems to be caused by the transfer of the stories from tapes. This is only heard when the sound is turned up. Actually, it is easily ignored as you get caught up in the stories.
The story itself is very enjoyable. I enjoy many of the new Sherlock Holmes stories that follow the best of the original.
It is the voice used for Sherlock Holmes that kills the performance. That voice mumbles and is so horrible I had real problems understanding his words.
