Publisher's Summary

In the year 1933, an elderly Dr. John Watson is looking back over his life and his time spent with his brilliant friend and master of deduction Sherlock Holmes. He writes in a letter to the listener that he has assembled a list of seven untold adventures that span from his and Sherlock's early years until the time of Sherlock's retirement. Watson explains that he wishes to leave, not only his family, but the public with a final compilation of adventures that he and Sherlock shared while he is still able. 

In these seven stories, Holmes and Watson are caught in the middle of multiple Government Scandals (Acquitted Client & Diamond Jubilee) cold blooded murders (Poisoned Affair & Saint Mary's Murder) and Terrorist groups (The Yellow Handkerchief). As well Holmes and Watson come face to face the spirits of darkness (The Haunted Hotel) and in a story that works through over a decade of Holmes's cases, we learn the truth about Watson's marital life and what happened to his wife Mary after Holmes's apparent death at Reichenbach (The Solved Problem).

These Untold Adventures of Sherlock Holmes will engage Holmes fans from all over, and will bring them deeper into the world of Sherlock Holmes and the complexities within.

Excellent Holmes stories

It is hard to write pastiche, esecially pastiche that creates a believable tie to the original source material. Luke Kuhns succeeds in this collection of short stories. While the Holmes/ Watson relationship is cool early on, it develops well as the stories proogress. Kuhns' fills in many holes in the Two Mrs. Watsons gaps left by ACD in his original stories. I definitely recommend this book to Sherlock Holmes fans.

VERY nice find. Close to Doyle's style & content.

Enjoyed very much. I liked the short-story format so reminiscent of most of the Holmes Canon. I do so tire of the novel-length tales spun by so many of those attempting to bring us more of Watson & Holmes. Oh, many are very good. exciting adventures, which I also enjoy. However change the names & the story is the same, good detective fiction. However, that would not be possible with the seven, as each I'd entirely dependent on the true character of John & Sherlock. I hope there will be many more to come, as I look forward to the next set.

Beautifully done !!

Winter have arrived:
A perfect time for going on adventure with Sherlock Holmes.
The author have accomplished amazingly to create awesome 7 short stories in 7 hours audio ( each one hour average ).
Truly amazing how he managed a crime, investigation and an arrest, all beautifully and quickly done !
Narration also was perfect with a different voice for each character.

This one is pure fun and recommended.

Sherlock Holmes Mysteries

Watson tells of the many mysteries solved by Sherlock by taking you back as if you were there with them. Narration was phenomenal.

The Untold Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

There are several stories not told before in this collection. The stories are very interesting and bring Holmes closer to being a human being. I found it highly interesting that the story of Dr Watson's wife and subsequent death are highlighted.
Each story brings it's own poignancy to the fore and will have the listener totally enraptured!
Joff Manning as a narrator is fantastic and brings the characters to life.

Untold Sherlock Holmes stories great collection

Although these stories may have been untold the last one was definitely not one of those as I did see that one on tv. But the remaining stories I do not recall ever hearing about.
The writing was well done and the narrator out did himself with the different voices.
I received this free from the author or narrator for an honest review.

Very good collection of short stories

A pastiche wrote in the traditional style, a collection of good stories based in great ideas, some of them greatly executed, others... not so much :P

I particularly enjoyed 'The Solved Problem' which deals with Mary Watson's death and 'The Adventure of the Haunted Hotel'

A writer to keep an eye on.

Enjoyable listen. Great narration.

What's not to love, Sherlock Holmes in a great narrating voice. I love the style of this author and this narrator and I will be looking for more items from both of them

A great Sherlock adventure

A really enjoyable tale in the vein of Arthur Conan Doyle. Maybe not quite as many of Sherlock’s famous deductions to the same depth as the original to be found, but still really well done.
Narration was great too, although a little more character differentiation would be nice, but Joff has great pacing and makes the stories really easy to listen to.
This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.
