A complete cast performs the only two Holmes plays written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as a spoof production by the audiobook’s producer, Yuri Rasovsky. In all three, Rasovsky combines a talented cast, spot-on sound effects, and a rich musical score to achieve a stunning audio production. Every character, every cast member, every special effect, and every note of music merits applause. The first two plays are vintage Conan Doyle--full of clues for the discerning listener, full of mystery for all, with a satisfying “aha!” at the end. In the third, Rasovsky presents a clever portrayal of Holmes in retirement, killing for pleasure and running off with Watson’s wife. Once you get over the shock, you’ll never read Sherlock the same way again. R.L.L.
