Publisher's Summary

The latest entry in Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger’s popular Sherlock Holmes-inspired mystery series

Sherlock Holmes has not only captivated readers for more than a century and a quarter, he has fascinated writers as well. It is little wonder, then, that when the renowned Sherlockians Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger invited their writer-friends and colleagues to be inspired by the Holmes canon, a cornucopia of stories sprang forth, with more than 60 of the greatest modern writers participating in four acclaimed anthologies. 

Now, King and Klinger have invited another 15 masters to become In League with Sherlock Holmes. The contributors to this volume include award-winning authors of horror, thrillers, mysteries, westerns, and science fiction, all bound together in admiration and affection for the original stories. The resulting stories are funny, haunting, thrilling, and surprising. All are unforgettable.

off the mark

I have listened to and enjoyed the other compilations by king and klinger. the stories in this compilation were way too dark for my taste unlike the previous books. I did not care for the readers for most of the stories either based on this book I will not be getting any more.

Not Sherlock Holmes

I guess I didn’t read the description thoroughly enough. I thought this was new stories of Sherlock Holmes. Homes doesn’t appear in any of them.

Good stories, shame about the readers

The stories on the whole, are well written and some of them are quite ingenious. But the readers really do let this audiobook down. Some of them were so woefully bad that I struggled to get through and I nearly returned the book to Audible. It’s a real shame that they didn’t get better voice actors – it really does mar the experience and I would not recommend this audiobook. I would recommend the book however, for fans of modern detective stories. My favourite story was the penultimate story, Cumberbachelor which was very well written and read. Nice exception.
