This is a story of Sherlock’s older brother, Mycroft, but that’s not all—it’s equally the story of Cyrus Douglas, a black tobacconist from Trinidad, and Holmes’s best friend. Narrator Damian Lynch is a master of voices. He’s sublime as the 23-year-old Holmes, with a proper British accent befitting the well-educated but inexperienced civil servant. Lynch is also superb as Douglas, giving him a deep, lilting island accent. As Holmes and Douglas set sail to uncover evil goings-on in Trinidad, Lynch’s narration exemplifies the book’s contemporary writing style, forward-thinking characters, and action-packed scenes. Holmes fans will appreciate Mycroft’s uncanny intelligence and the references to his brother. Lynch captures every voice and accent perfectly, making this an exceptional audio experience. M.M.G.
