Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

The great detective Sherlock Holmes finds a lost American cousin in this rollicking entertainment. Narrator William Dufris shuffles accents and characters like a deck of cards. His portrayal of the Amlingmeyer brothers, Gustave, a "Holmes wannabe," and his younger sibling, Otto, a "Doctor Watson stand-in," is emotional and affecting. Few narrators could genuinely pull off a Swedish cook, a pompous English duke and his prissy daughter, and a cowboy with a Cockney accent, sometimes in the same scene. No listener's imagination could come up with a better experience than hearing this title. Let's hope there are more adventures with the Amlingmeyer brothers, inspired by Holmes and Watson.
