He is waiting for the last piece of the puzzle to be delivered to him before he can travel back to his country and relay the last of his findings. Von Bork will be heralded as a hero to the German army when he gets back; however, when the Irish American informant, Altamont, shows up with the package, things start to get a little strange in the Von Bork household.

Good stories

Hokey smokes, I don't think I've ever read The Cardboard Box before! How did that one slip through? Anyway, while not classic Holmes like Adventures or Memoirs or even Return, there are a lot of great stories here. The Dying Detective, Wisteria Lodge, and The Devil's Foot are the best of the lot. McCallion's narration is odd, making Holmes so laconic that he at times sounds bored by his cases!

Very odd choice of narrator.

Classic Holmes but not much of a performance by the reader (and a number of annoying mispronunciations).

Really dull narration!!??

I love Sherlock Holmes stories, the narrator ruins things here. Very surprised this one got past the QA process.
