Publisher's Summary

A tired and battle scarred surgeon returns to London after being wounded in the third Afghan war. After his money starts to run low, a chance encounter leads him to take a flat with an eccentric man at 221B Baker Street. Thus begins the famous crime-solving partnership of the Holmes and Watson duo.

When a body turns up in an abandoned building, Scotland Yard is baffled, and calls in the world's first 'consulting detective¿, Mr. Sherlock Holmes. Through observation, subterfuge, and tenacity, he is soon able to discover the identity of the assassin, but that is only the beginning of the bizarre mystery.

Great first

I have read all the Sherlock Holmes books and have enjoyed each one over and over again. The audio book is just as good and the narrator is easy to listen too. He doesn't over do the English accent and he doesn't under do it.

Published over 180 years ago and still GREAT

First time I've ever read one of the Sherlock Homes stories. I was amazed it is still so relevant. Happy.

Classic Holmes

Great imagination and storytelling. My only issue was the backstory seemed disjointed. But ultimately was very satisfied. Overall very good.
