(3.5 stars)

5 stars for the reader, 3 stars for the book . Not the best Sherlock story in my opinion, ( reminded one quite a bit of the set up of A Study in Scarlet) it was a bit bloody for me, with some great plot twists, though. But the reader!!! He did all of the individual voices( even for the minor characters!) and his accents were perfect! I felt that I could see each and every character and scene in my mind's eye. Thanks so much, Mr. Clarke!

I love David Clarke's Sherlock readings. He has a gift for giving the characters distinct voices so we know who is speaking without getting to hammy or exaggerated about it loke other readers often do. Plus very relaxing voice. A few places where the recording quality is bot the best, but still get five stars; it's a volunteer project, not a pro recording studio, and I like this guy's reading so much that it doesn't even matter.
