Mystery & Suspense • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Attentive listeners may find themselves checking their ears as they listen to this classic Sherlock Holmes story. Is it a full-cast recording? Actually, no. All of these marvelously individualized voices are the work of David Timson, whose Sherlock Holmes speaks with arrogance and crackling intelligence and whose Scots country folk speak in pronounced accents. Aided by judiciously orchestrated music to set the mood and signal transitions, Timson brings this classic tale of suspense to vivid life. He understands Conan Doyle's pacing and even makes some of the author's blockier expository passages flow smoothly. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
