Summary

"A Case in Three": Three seemingly separate crimes, three detectives. A mysterious stalker is on the loose in London known only as the Goblin Man and his sights are set on a wealthy businessman, David Daniels. A horrific explosion rips through Whitechapel Underground Station and the prime suspect is a Jewish anarchist. And a Mrs. Clara Edwards is searching for her missing lover, Philias Jackson. What connects these three? It's a dangerous and complex game that connects Sherlock Holmes, Investigator Martin Hewitt, and former Ripper investigator and head of H Division Edmund Reid.
"The Great American Adventure": In 1888 Mr. Sherlock Holmes was beat by Irene Adler AKA the Woman. After her marriage she left London. Two years later her husband, Godfrey Norton, is found dead in his New York office after apparently committing suicide. Irene Adler doesn't believe he would do that. She goes to the one person who will help: Sherlock Holmes. Holmes and Watson head to America where they dive into the mysterious life of Godfrey Norton to learn how and why he died.

Three fun and well-narrated Holmes stories.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, if they are a fan of Sherlock Holmes and need a fix.

What other book might you compare Sherlock Holmes and the Scarlet Thread of Murder to, and why?

Not a comparison but if you are after post-Doyle Holmes stories do read the Mary Russell series buy Laurie King. The first is called The Beekeeper’s Apprentice and is set during Holmes' retirement in the Sussex Downs. Jolly good stuff.

Any additional comments?

1) The narration was superb. Good choice of reader.

2) I read a couple of bad reviews about this book. Unless you are a Holmes purist you should ignore them; if you fancy listening to three fun and interconnected stories (one long, two short) set in a world you know and love give it a go. Yes he does go to the Wild West, and yes he does wear a stetson, but don't let that put you off. He didn't really wear a deer stalker either!

Sherlock with a Twist

I thought I was getting a real Sherlock Holmes book in a modern version, so at first I was a little confused, but I kept listening and decided and that I was enjoying it! This is a very entertaining mystery in a similar style of the original.

The narrator, Joff Manning, was simply fantastic, great character voices, inflections, pauses, etc. I’d like to listen to more books narrated by him.

I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!

If you found this review helpful would you please take a moment to click yes below, thanks!

Luke Kuhns

A very well done story with fine narration and always welcome addition of Irene Adler with Holmes and Watson in 1890 America.
