Summary

It is June, 1897, the eve of the greatest celebration in the history of London - the Diamond Jubilee of Her Royal Highness Victoria, Queen of the United Kingdom and Empress of India. At 221B Baker Street, happy anticipation of the event is shattered when an alarmed Samuel Clemens bursts in and informs Holmes and Watson that his life is threatened by a bizarre international conspiracy. Holmes, Watson, and Clemens spend the frantic final days before the Jubilee discovering that the conspiracy is much worse than Clemens imagined. The very fate of the Empire is at stake. Replete with the trademark Holmesian insights and London underworld adventuring, Diamond Jubilee features a host of London characters, including a brilliant London "crime queen," Prime Minister Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, Mycroft Holmes, Scotland Yard's best and worst, the Baker Street Irregulars (themselves infiltrated by unknown sinister elements), and thousands of the most appalling rats.

Dr. Watson to the Front

Interesting story connecting in Mark Twain to Holmes & Watson. Kept me guessing til the end. Enjoyed Watson taking the spotlight in the story. The performance was good, but I thought Sherlock and Watson sounded a little too similar.

I need more books by this author!

Oh, this was a wonderful story, a perfect mesh between Sherlock Holmes and Mark Twain done through a wonderful Watson's voice.

I love that Watson has a prime spot in this tale (I love Watson, sue me!) and truly enjoyed the final battle between him, Twain and the killer.

Beautifully written, historically accurate and filled with suspense, this was a wonderful book. I hope the author will write more Holmes' stories :D

Slow

As Holmes fan I am always on the lookout for new reading matter. Since Sir Arthur left this world many years ago. New works are mere replicas. Some are excellent some poor.
in my opinion This one is dry and without the spark. A passable story and a plot that could've been great but just fizzled out.
Saved by a good narrator.
I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this honest review.

Sherlock Holmes is always great!

I loved this book! A great job with a surprise visit by an well known author! It is complicated, full of action. And it is an great example of Sherlock and Watson!

The narrator hit it perfect!
