S.J. Henschel
AudioFile, September 2014

Naxos Audiobooks once again demonstrates impeccable casting by entrusting one of Conan Doyle’s best Holmes mysteries to master narrator David Timson. Timson KNOWS Holmes and Watson. With just the right amount of flair, he allows Sherlock his idiosyncrasies without overdoing them, and his Watson is stodgily concerned about his friend’s dangerous habits. Timson recounts an intriguing mystery dealing with Holmes’ cocaine use, a young woman’s receipt of a pearl a year after her father’s disappearance, the legacy of a great treasure, and murder. He also creates a charming and believable character in Mary Morstan, the future Mrs. John Watson. © 2014 AudioFile
