Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories, John Taylor has written four more mysteries featuring the world's greatest detective. Read by acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch, these new adventures share all the suspense of the original tales. In a drawer in his bureau, Dr Watson keeps a locked cedarwood chest - a `box of secrets'. It contains an archive of notes referring to some of Holmes' cases that, for one reason or another, never saw the light of day. Now, for the first time, Watson has decided to reveal the truth to the world... In these four thrilling stories, Holmes experiments with the science of ballistics, locates some missing gold bullion, investigates the theft of a large amount of money and solves the baffling mystery of the Stovey murder. The stories are: An Inscrutable Masquerade'; 'The Conundrum of Coach 13'; 'The Trinity Vicarage Larceny' and 'The 10.59 Assassin'. 2 CDs. 2 hrs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Cumberbatch's reading of the stories is excellent... he switches between voices and accents with consumate ease. These are very accomplished pastiches by John Taylor" * http://www.johnhwatsonmd.com *
"Benedict Cumberbatch... shines in this audio version of four short mystery stories written by John Taylor and inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle... Cumberbatch's crisp narration builds in intensity and energy with the action and suspense of each story. His Watson is thoughtful and nuanced while his Sherlock is quick and bright with a sharp, commanding voice. A treat for Holmes fans and mystery lovers" * Publishers Weekly *
