Out on Audio: Watson – My Life

Out on Audio: Watson – My Life: An Autobiography of Doctor Watson, Comrade and Friend of Sherlock Holmes

In 1936, an elderly Doctor Watson sits at his desk with a dictation machine and, over a two week period, recounts the significant moments in his life. The expected publication of his autobiography never materialized. But in 2017 the wax cylinders containing Watson’s words appeared and have at last been made available to the general public. This, then is the life of Doctor John H Watson.

Out on Audio – Sherlock Holmes and the Sword of Osman

Out on Audio – Sherlock Holmes and the Sword of Osman

It’s 1906. Far from England, the Ottoman Empire ruled by the despotic Sultan Abd-ul-Hamid 11 is on the verge of imploding. Rival Great Powers, especially Kaiser Wilhelm’s Germany, sit watching like crows on a fence, ready to rush in to carve up the vast territories, menacing England’s vital overland routes to her Indian possessions. At his medical practice in London’s Marylebone, Watson receives a mystifying telegram. It’s from Holmes. “Dear Watson, if you can throw physic to the dogs for an hour or two I would appreciate meeting at the stone cross at Charing Cross railway station tomorrow noon. I have an assignation with a birdlover at the Stork & Ostrich House in the Regents Park which has excited my curiosity. Yrs. S.H.”

Watson finds the invitation puzzling. Why should such a mundane meeting at a Bird House excite the curiosity of Europe’s most famous investigating detective or anyone else? For old times’ sake, Watson joins his old comrade-in-arms. Within days, Holmes and Watson find themselves aboard HMS Dreadnought en route to Stamboul, a city of fabled opulence, high espionage, and low intrigue. Their mission: at all costs, stop a plot which could bring about the immediate collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

Out on Audio –  The Hounding of Peers Baskerville: The Redacted Sherlock Holmes

It is 1909, and 20 years have passed since the great Devon adventure.

Holmes is consulted by Sir Henry Baskerville’s son after a shepherd in the baronet’s clothes is found dead at the foot of a cliff.

Watson is dispatched to Dartmoor to investigate and finds that the publication of his novel – controversial at the time because of the inadequacies it exposed in Holmes’s handling of the original case – has had some wholly unexpected consequences for the members of the dramatis personae of the original story.

It takes the return of Holmes to Dartmoor to separate truth from legend and to bring some legend to the truth.

Now 141 books on the Pinterest Sherlock Holmes Audio Books Board

The Redacted Sherlock Holmes Series is available from Amazon USA, Barnes and Noble USA, Amazon UK , Book Depository (free worldwide shipping) and all the books and individual stories are available in Kindle and Audio book format.

Practical Handbook of Bee Culture by Sherlock Holmes

In the summer of 2016, retired broadcaster Paul Ashton made an astounding discovery at a car boot sale in Sussex. He found a copy of Sherlock Holmes’s Practical Handbook of Bee Culture, and bought it for £2. No other copy of this legendary volume – the only book Holmes wrote – has ever come to light.

The Handbook is the journal kept by Holmes from 1904 to 1912. 1904 was the year he retired from active investigation and moved to a farmhouse in East Dean. In 1912 he came out of retirement and left East Dean in order to outwit the German spy network in Britain on the eve of World War I.

Now 122 books on the Sherlock Holmes Audio Books Pinterest Board.

Practical Handbook of Bee Culture is available from all good bookstores including  The Strand Magazine, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.
