The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes Volume 2

Arthur Conan Doyle, , read by David Timson. . Naxos AudioBooks, $28.98 (0pp) ISBN 978-962-634-862-8

After 10 years, 57 stories, four novels and 60 CDs, David Timson's monumental task of recording every word of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories for Naxos concludes. Timson even contributes a Holmes-Watson adventure of his own, “The Wonderful Toy.” Timson reads energetically, throwing himself into the stories' spirit of elegant deduction and headlong adventure. The dulcet tones of Timson's Watson are frequently interrupted by a panoply of other voices: Cockney ladies of the night, harried businessmen and, of course, the clipped public school staccato of Holmes himself.
