Narrator Simon Prebble presents a first-rate, easygoing Dr. Watson in this prequel (set in 1895) to the Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James series. Wendy Tremont King portrays feisty young American Lucy James. The orphaned Lucy hopes to learn the identity of a mysterious benefactor while in London with her wealthy boyfriend, Johnny Rockefeller. Both narrators ratchet up the tension when a bank that Lucy and Rockefeller are visiting is robbed. The armed robbers' chilling demands contrast sharply with Lucy's cool voice as she negotiates with them. Listeners will hear the incomparable detecting methods of Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James as they discuss the case by phone--their only form of communication.
