Subtitled as "The American Chronicles of John H. Watson, M.D.," Larry Millett reinvents the mythic sleuth Sherlock Holmes and brings him to North America and the icy waters of the Mississippi in this deceptive case. Bringing all the suave confidence to Holmes is acclaimed British actor Simon Prebble. He has an added challenge of switching--sometimes hastily, as the text demands--between British and American dialects, but he seems to do this without much difficulty and with barely perceptible flaws. SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE ICE PALACE MURDERS is certainly an audiobook to add to a Holmes fan's collection. R.A.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
