Publisher's Summary

Britain and Germany are at war, and Sexton Blake is in the thick of it.

As the battle for the Western Front rages, adventuring detective Sexton Blake pits his intellect and physical prowess against the machinations of the Kaiser. A band of intrepid allies join Blake to take on the forces of evil in three classic stories, collected here for the first time.

From uncovering secret German naval bases to dangling from zeppelins, fighting atop moving trains and escaping firing squads, Blake moves through war-torn Europe solving mysteries and fighting against tyranny.

Join him as he enters a war of secrets, soldiers and spies....

Better if you know the character, I think.

Sherlock Holmes is by far more familiar to Americans than is Sexton Blake. As such, his action oriented character elicits a different amount of interest than the problem solving Holmes. I found it harder to suspend my disbelief with the Blake character. Finally, I personally regret that Audible books are not produced with audio compression. It is a common annoyance to be shaken out of reverie when the reader decides to emote. This is especially true when listening with Alexa timer set at bedtime.
