A coworker loaned me this a copy of this which they got as a free audiobook. Because Sherlock Holmes is such an seminal fictional hero, and I have loved many works of fiction based on the character, I was eager to listen to it.

I didn't find this story to be very interesting, perhaps it's just the time gap. And, while I like the idea of a crime-fighting genius like Holmes, I found a lot of his abductions to be awfully far-reaching.
