Using an Indian accent, Vikas Adam performs the role of Captain James Agnihotri, retired from the British army, as he tells of his experiences in 1892 Bombay. The captain follows the methods of his idol, Sherlock Holmes, as he investigates the deaths of two young women he suspects of having been murdered while also getting drawn into political and military issues of the day. Adam smoothly incorporates words from different languages of India and creates a positive experience for each listener, making everyone feel a part of the action of the audiobook. When one character cries, Adam genuinely cries. When another character celebrates, Adam leads listeners in throwing the party. V.M.G.
