Wonderful. Great story and fantastic narrator! Thank you for this FREE gift.
An unusual but thrilling episode
With a backstory filling half the content without Holmes this is not the average case telling, but Conan Doyle gets to show his range. Clearly read and well paced.
Awesomely read and very intriguing. Always entertained by these great reads that are given to us for free by these wonderful volunteers. Thanks so much.
a regular Conan Doyle that starts in London and turns into a western before the end. very good story with a good narrator
Linda in Seattle
I like this reader. She is clear and easy to understand. The story is compelling with a surprise ending.
A bit more drawn out than most SH cases, but surely one of the best. I would like to think that the Pinkerton detective staged his own death and lived to a ripe old age in S A. It is possible.
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
Good narration with only minor issues. Audio quality is quite variable though, with parts having much hiss and noise. The recording is biased towards the treble side of things, and is thus tiresome to listen to at the higher volumes required to understand the voice over the background noise.
