(4.6 stars; 1468 reviews)

Having left Sherlock Holmes apparently deceased at the conclusion of The Final Problem (in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes), we now find that he is alive after all! In this collection, first published in 1905, the great detective causes Watson to faint (The Empty House), demonstrates that cryptography is elementary (The Dancing Men), and gets engaged (Charles Augustus Milverton). Join in the fun as Holmes deduces his way through these thirteen adventures. (summary by Laurie Anne Walden)

Reviews

pretty good


(4.5 stars)

The readers could do better, but overall, pretty good. The plots are not as scary as, say the hound of the baskervilles, (which I recommend, version three) but I didn't see these turnouts of the mysteries coming and I enjoyed it

wonderful for a long journey


(4.5 stars)

I downloaded this audiobook set for my trip to Oakland from Los Angeles. I enjoyed each story and it helped make the 5.5 hours go by faster.

love it

Return of sherlock holmes


(5 stars)

great book. I love all the s.h. adventures

A Holmes classic, of course.


(5 stars)

One of the few books I’ve listened to more than once through the years. For stories where I remember who did it I listen again to remind myself how Holmes figured it out!

good read


(3.5 stars)

would have preferred gentlemen readers for all chapters as the character in question is a man. Best read is by Ken Theriot whose voice fits best with Holmes


(4 stars)

I liked the way that Holmes came back. I wasn't sure that the explanation would seem plausible but it did. As always, I enjoyed the other stories as well.
