Description

"Have you ever seen a ghost, Mr. Holmes?" asks Victoria Temple, and Sherlock Holmes, at the height of his powers in 1898, must face a new challenge, one that plunges the great detective into the realm of the supernatural. Miss Temple has been found guilty—but also insane—at her trial for murdering a child under her care. She is locked away in the Broadmoor lunatic asylum, and worse still, she believes fully in her own guilt. But were the hauntings at the Elizabethan manor house of Bly a vision of the walking dead, perhaps, rather than delusions of her tormented mind? Or could it be that a criminal conspiracy is to blame for the psychic phenomena, as well as a second murder cunningly concealed in the past?

In the company of Dr. Watson, the indefatiguable Holmes will track down the perpetrators through the occult underworld of Victorian London.

Next, on the eve of World War I, Holmes is confronted with fraud and forgery at the Royal Naval Academy in "The Case of a Boy's Honor." While back in London, behind the scenes of the Herculaneum Theatre in the Strand, "The Case of the Matinee Idol" embroils Holmes and Watson directly in an apparent onstage murder. How did poison get into two Shakespearean goblets when only the victim, now dead, had access to them and the most likely suspect was a mile away with an unthinkable alibi?

      • content: Creating a series of short stories based on Sherlock Holmes is a risky endeavor. Fortunately, Donald Thomas has succeeded, and the excellent narration of John Telfer adds to his success and to listeners' pleasure. Holmes is called upon by his brother, Mycroft, to assist with a problem at a Royal Navy prep school. Holmes movingly deals with an underprivileged boy and the cruel and snobbish headmaster. Snippets of humor and Holmes lore, as well as the character of Dr. Watson, add to the joy of these new adventures. A tale in which Holmes and Watson attend a sÄance adds to the authenticity of the stories since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a serious believer in the occult. Telfer skillfully keeps listeners in the time and place for a satisfying dose of Victoriana and detection. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

        June 27, 2011
        John Telfer turns in an uneven performance in the audio version of Thomas's collection of new Sherlock Holmes stories. Back again for new adventures, Holmes and faithful friend and colleague Dr. John Watson clash wits with ghosts, frauds, and murderers in these four tales. Telfer's narration is well-paced and compelling. His Holmes is curt, sharp, and captures the spirit of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's great detective, while his affable Watson avoids slipping into the realm of bumbling caricature. But his portrayal of secondary characters proves problematic: Telfer does little to distinguish the minor characters' voices and could do more with his rendition of women and children. Nonetheless, his narration grows on listeners, and devotees of Holmes and Watson will relish having fresh installments in the adventures at 221B Baker Street. A Pegasus hardcover.

        Starred review from September 27, 2010
        Henry James's The Turn of the Screw provides the inspiration for the lengthy title tale of Thomas's superb fifth collection of Sherlock Holmes pastiches (after 2009's Sherlock Holmes and the King's Evil). In 1898, Holmes and Watson intervene on behalf of Victoria Temple, a governess confined to an insane asylum after a verdict of guilty but insane for the murder of 10-year-old Miles Mordaunt, who was suffocated only days after his eight-year-old sister, Flora, died of diphtheria. The accused murderess is convinced that the ghosts of a valet and her predecessor as governess were trying to seduce both children into evil. The three other selections are nearly up to the same high standard. "The Case of a Boy's Honour," about a scandal at a boarding school, compels even without a murder to solve. Sherlockians will hope Thomas continues to turn out these faithful and imaginative recreations for years to come.
