The Complete Casebook of Sherlock Holmes

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, read by David Timson. Naxos, unabridged, 8 CDs, 10 hours, $35 ISBN 978-962-634-888-8

David Timson delivers an outstanding performance in this highly recommended audiobook of a collection of Conan Doyle's Casebook that features lesser-known tales%E2%80%94like "The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier" and "The Adventure of the Retired Colourman"%E2%80%94in a refreshing break from the recent rash of Holmes audiobooks focusing on Conan Doyle's earlier and more famous stories. Timson%E2%80%94who has narrated the entire Holmes canon%E2%80%94is a revelation; he captures the essence of the text, delivering perfect renditions for every character and vividly creating for the listener the rich and wonderful world of crime-ridden Victorian London.
