Publisher's Summary

Join Sherlock Holmes - and his faithful companion and chronicler, Dr. Watson - on their first case. The adventure begins when Holmes and Watson are asked by Scotland Yard to step around to a house off Brixton Road. In the vacant house, the police have discovered a body: one Enoch J. Drebber of Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A. There are quantities of blood all over the room, and on one wall, the single word, Rache is scrawled in blood red letters. Inspector Lestrade wants Holmes's opinion: "If this man was murdered," he asks, "how was it done?" "Poison," Holmes said curtly. "Come, Watson. The game is afoot."

Not exactly what i expected

I went in knowing very little about the actual Sherlock Holmes stories aside from what i've seen on TV/movies and i'm not really sure how i feel. I was confused about the transition from Holmes to the killer's point of view but that could have been more from me being distracted. I don't know, the jury is still out but i didn't hate it so a solid three stars, maybe four if i re-listen and pick up on things i missed.
