Publisher's Summary

From the curious clauses in a miser’s will, to a plea for help on a tiny scrap of paper, these six cases, from the early years of Holmes’s career in the 1880s, present a singular collection of mysteries for the world’s first consulting detective to resolve.

What is the significance of the arrival in the post one morning of a cardboard packet of children’s bricks? Who is the man found dying in a deserted warehouse in London’s East End, and what is he doing there? Why have the names of a couple of young honeymooners been removed from a hotel register? Sherlock Holmes must find the answers to these and many other puzzling questions if he is to bring these cases to a successful conclusion. In this new collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories, well-known author, Denis O. Smith, accurately recreates once more both the atmosphere and the excitement of Conan Doyle’s well-loved original Holmes tales.

Pleased listener here

Having heard many Sherlock Holmes pastiches, I found this one to be the best. The credibility of Holmes' inductions and interplay between Holmes and Watson make it worthwhile. Add in narration by Kevin E Green and the result is a fantastic listen.

Just like if Sir Arthur had written it

written as well as the original stories and in the same style. Narration was well done and brought the story to life.
