i <heart> Katie Riley ... i think her reading style seemed exquisitely par on, for this story ... she is a bit "dry" but something about that voice of hers in narration creates a lucid dream of brilliance and beauty for me .. oh and obviously Doyle delivers

very good

Very entertaining and well read

great story

(4.5 stars)

I think that this is my favourite Sherlock Holmes story. it features all of the elements for which the character is famous but has an underlying dripping story. it took a little while for my native English ears to to come to terms with the reader's voice but I'm glad I persevered as I really enjoyed her reading.

loved it

(4 stars)

I feel that it was short and sweet but very well done. I think that the part 2 might have come before part 1 just as well but, it was overall great. I would have given 5 stars had it not been that the reader mispronounced several words
