In 1868, a teenaged Sherlock Holmes is learning the ropes of detecting and deducing when his brother, Mycroft, is accused of murder. James Langton's expert narration brings out both the fun of seeing Holmes make mistakes and the tension of observing the boy and his mentor sift through clues to reveal the sinister plot to destroy Mycroft. Langton's consistent characterizations and ease with accents make it easy for listeners to stay connected to the story of the famous detective's tutelage. Manipulating the drama and pacing of his reading, Langton gives us the creeps when young Sherlock is lost in dark tunnels and keeps us glued to our earbuds when the boy is running for his life. Excellent listening for all ages. C.B.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2013]
