Hard to distinguish from Conan Doyle
This was my first Donald Thomas book and it fits in very well with everything Conan Doyle wrote. Different stories unfold, all very good and all of which sustained my interest until the end. The narrator reads it really well as well. I'd definitely recommend this to Sherlock or classic detective fans.

Well worth a listen
This author has picked up the Conan Doyle baton excellently. Good stories - very enjoyable and well read. As a Sherlock Holmes fan I was apprehensive of this book - but absolutely no regrets.

Dull and droning
From all the Sherlock Holmes on audible this must be the worst, dull, monotone, dreary.
