Publisher's Summary

Performed by acclaimed narrators Simon Prebble and Wendy Tremont King, this adventure takes place in Victorian London, 1897. 

Sherlock Holmes has been asked by South African mogul Cecil Rhodes to stop an international ring of diamond smugglers. An alluring woman wants Watson to help raise funds for her charity. Lucy and Jack are looking forward to their wedding and moving into a new home. But then a new series of murders take place in Whitechapel, and Lucy is targeted by a notorious killer. 

The Baker Street team will need more than their usual deductive brilliance to defeat their latest adversary, or else the case of the Ripper could be their last.

A truly amazing story

I have always distrusted books which try to add new characters to the Holmes-Watson dynamic, but here it's done to perfection. Lucy is a great, attractive character, smart and believable. And Holmes and Watson are their true selves, both their characters perfectly captured.

This audiobook can be listen as a stand-alone story, as there are only brief mentions to previous cases and none it's related to the current one.

The story itself has a very well constructed plot and will keep you hooked until the very end.

And the narration adds to the general enjoyment of the book. A very recommended audiobook.

Great Series

I have listened to the entire series and enjoyed it very much. I love Lucy James and her interaction with Sherlock and Uncle John. I hope there will be more stories.

Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James

Please keep these stories coming. I have been a Sherlock Holmes fan since I was a boy. These stories take me back to a time when all the Sherlock Holmes mysteries were all new to me. I love the new characters and I thanks go out to Anna Elliott and Charles Veley for creating these wonderful stories. Thank you also to Simon Prebble and Wendy Tremont King for bringing these characters to life.
