Sir Derek Jacobi’s lively narration of the last Sherlock Holmes novel is a treat for listeners. Jacobi performs Holmes with enthusiasm as he deduces the true nature of the crime that has taken place after a body is found at a country estate. The story begins in England but soon transitions to flashbacks that take place in the American West, where a gang terrorizes a mining town. Jacobi embraces the American thugs, using appropriate accents and menacing tones. The gangsters eventually travel to England, where it is up to the great detective to reveal their crimes. With plenty of action stateside and thoughtful investigating in England, this classic will appeal to all mystery lovers. K.M.D. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
