Review By Rafe McGregor,,October 2008

With The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes II David Timson completes his reading of the complete Holmes Canon, ten years after the release of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes I [Naxos AudioBooks NA315212]. It’s a task he’s fulfilled with dedication, erudition, panache and wit, proving himself to be one of the great “voice men”. He makes every character a distinct individual, without resorting to exaggerated mannerisms—except, of course, for those flamboyant types for whom exaggeration is a part of their personality. Mr Timson’s collaboration with Nicolas Soames, who has overseen the project from the start, ensures that the pacing is just right. Listening to these familiar tales you can appreciate how sure-footed Arthur Conan

(Roger Johnson is an acclaimed author, editor, and Sherlockian. In addition to his many other interests, he edits The Sherlock Holmes Journal and The District Messenger for The Sherlock Holmes Society of London.)
