After months of inactivity, Holmes and Watson have two cases thrust in their lap in a single day. First, a mysterious woman from Swansea, Wales seeks Holmes' help finding her husband who has disappeared in the middle of the night. As soon as she leaves, Holmes receives word that there has been a prison riot with several dead and a few inmates missing. Lestrade is asking for his services. Holmes believes the two cases are not a coincidence, but he has no idea who is behind it and to what end. They go to Swansea in what could be either a wild goose chase or a setup. Will Holmes unravel the mystery before they get to Swansea? If not what will be in store for them when they step off the train?

Cover Review:

The cover is simple, though I think it's too bland and uninteresting. 

Narration Review:

The narrator Ben Werling did such a great job in this book. I could actually imagine Sherlock Holmes and Watson having those conversations. His voice, his style, it all resonated with the characters perfectly. I couldn't have chosen a better narrator for this story!

Story Review:

Writing itself is a tough task. But writing a character that's already alive in the minds of millions of people, and doing justice to it, is even more difficult. 

Author William Todd pulled it off quite efficiently. Sherlock Holmes is supposedly one of the most difficult characters to recreate. The deduction method used by him could only be perfectly devised by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but William Todd did a quite good job on his own. 

The story was short, but full of action. From train accidents to the prisoners' outbreak, there was suspense, mysteries and the usual Holmes flair. 

I had fun listening to this audiobook and look forward to reading more from the author and listening more from the narrator!
