Description-
  • A body on the London Underground; the strange disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax; a parcel containing some coarse salt and two freshly severed human ears...This collection of eight world-famous cases from Doctor Watson's portfolio illustrates the singular mental faculties of Sherlock Holmes. In the course of his investigations, Holmes himself is struck down by a virulent Eastern disease, and we are reintroduced to his remarkable brother Mycroft: "all other men are specialists, but his specialism is omniscience." Finally, with the approach of the German War, Holmes emerges from retirement among his books and bees on the South Downs to lay his unique intellect at the disposal of the British Government, with the historic results disclosed in "His Last Bow".

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine This production opens with a biographical sketch of the author from the back of the tape case. It is informative but tells us nothing of this particular book. Nevertheless, these tales are quintessential Holmes, as seen through the eyes of his faithful companion, Dr. Watson. The final (and title) story of this collection reunites the pair in a case involving Holmes posing as a British spy at the onset of WW I. Reader Frederick Davidson portrays the erudite, witty Holmes with considerable aplomb. Watson is also comfortably done. Other characters are somewhat forced, but generally Davidson's style is wellsuited to the tone of these timeless stories. J.J.F. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine
