Perhaps the best retelling of Holmes I have read/listened to. Slow to start but picks up as the narrator brings all the characters to life.

The book wraps several cases in to a longer story arc and provides interesting clues and puzzles. A few times where Mary misses the obvious for the sake of the story are forgivable.

Listening with my wife on a long car journey and at the end we both said "let's start the next one."

As is often the case with series the story was slow starting, but the humor and great performance drew me in. Book 2 is in my wish list and will be moved up in my reading list.

Though there are a few obvious questions that go unasked to move the story along.
