Charlton Griffin narrates this excellent collection, which introduces Sherlock Holmes, the master of ratiocination, the genius who turns to cocaine when he’s plagued with ennui, and the greatest fictional detective of all time. Griffin's performance offers a familiar Holmes, self-assured as he shows off his deductive talents, and a credible, if stuffy, Watson. With subtle accents and attitudes, Griffin's women characters don't simper, and his secondary characters have depth. In such early stories as "A Study in Scarlet," in which Holmes first meets Watson, "The Sign of Four," "A Scandal in Bohemia," and "The Boscombe Valley Mystery," Griffin's clear, precise diction and informed pacing recreate Holmes's gas-lit Victorian London, where, as Holmes himself would say, “the game's afoot!” S.J.H. 2010 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2010]
