by | Read by Kelly Clare

Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Using a clipped British accent, Kelly Clare narrates this tale of murder, theft, and ulterior motives, wrapped up in a Sherlockian puzzle. The game's afoot when Gemma finds a rare copy of Conan Doyle's earliest Holmes story hidden in her store, the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop and Emporium, located at 222 Baker Street in West London, Cape Cod. Smoothly and exactingly, much like Holmes, Clare delivers this cozy mystery, shifting fluidly from British to New England accents. There's a Holmesian twist to each clue and ex-pat Gemma, using her unusual Sherlockian perception, follows each lead, annoying police detective Louise Estrada and frustrating her former boyfriend, Detective Ryan Ashburton. Clare's narration flows steadily as she delivers British terms, Gemma's logical pronouncements, and the emotional search for a first edition.
