Holmes to the Rescue!

Through a lot of road trips and sleepless nights, Sherlock Holmes has been a wonderful companion to the members of my family. As interpreted by the brilliant Derek Jacobi, "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" in audio form seems fresh and new. You just can't beat this for sheer joyful escapism!

I love this book because you can listen to it in bits and pieces not necessarily all at once.

By far the best Sherlock Holmes audiobook

Sherlock Holmes mysteries are classic, but having them read by Derek Jacobi is by far the best way to listen to them... they are love of the few series I enjoy listening to over and over again.
