The mind behind Sherlock Holmes reveals itself as deeper and more interesting than the casual Holmes fan might suppose. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle desired a place in literary history rather different from the one he now occupies--it was historical romance that most interested him as an author, and spiritualism as a man, the latter especially in his later years. Richard Matthews's smooth British narration does justice to the man, his times, and particularly his acquaintances, sliding as he does into mild accents, such as Scottish or Irish, as the character on hand requires.
