Description

The House of Silk: A Sherlock Holmes Novel: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!* 

"Horowitz truly pulls off the wonderful illusion that Arthur Conan Doyle left us one last tale." (San Diego Union Tribune)

London, 1890. 221B Baker St. A fine-art dealer named Edmund Carstairs visits Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson to beg for their help. He is being menaced by a strange man in a flat cap - a wanted criminal who seems to have followed him all the way from America. In the days that follow, his home is robbed, his family is threatened. And then the first murder takes place.

The House of Silk brings Sherlock Holmes back with all the nuance, pacing, and almost superhuman powers of analysis and deduction that made him the world's greatest detective, in a case depicting events too shocking, too monstrous to ever appear in audio....until now.  

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Critiques

"Horowitz truly pulls off the wonderful illusion that Arthur Conan Doyle left us one last tale.... Close your eyes and you can smell the shag tobacco of Holmes' church warded pipe as he sorts through the evidence." (San Diego Union Tribune)

"Nicely captures the storytelling tone of Holmes' inventor in a galloping adventure that boasts enough twists, ominous turns and urgent nocturnal escapades to make modern moviemakers salivate.... Author Horowitz delivers some dramatic tableaux in these pages, including a railway robbery, a prison escape and a horse-drawn carriage chase...the Holmes we see here is just as cryptic and clever as we've come to expect." (Kirkus Reviews)

"The hype surrounding what's being billed as the first pastiche ever officially approved by the Conan Doyle estate is amply justified...authentic. Horowitz gets everything right - the familiar narrative voice, brilliant deductions, a very active role for Watson, and a perplexing and disturbing series of puzzles to unravel - and the legion of fans of the originals will surely be begging for Horowitz to again dip into Watson's trove of untold tales." (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

well written, not a good audio-version

The narrator uses a musical voice, going up and down too many times in one sentence. The story doesn't need this. Not worth the extra charge for the background music, as it's the same tune throughout the whole book. Money thrown away on this one.

Helping Sir Derek?

Take a great story with a great character. Hire a FANTASTIC actor. Now you simply need...

Music in the background THROUGHOUT the book?!? I eventually tuned it out but this was a terrible production. Three stars carried solely by Jacobi. One star for the plinky mood music.

A tribute to Conan Doyle

A wonderful story that was well written. The music sometimes interfered with the enjoyment of the book.

no more music in background

I have the house of silk without the sound track and with the sound track. I will never buy a book with a music sound in the background. When I first noticed it I kept looking around to see who was trying to annoy me. Could not find the culprit. when I finally it was on the sound track I quit listening and loaded the one without music and am enjoying it again. g r ziegler

What's with the background music!!!!

An eloquently written Sherlock Holmes novel written by AH and narrated deliciously by the wonderful DJ but oh my goodness the repetitive and boring background music nearly drove me up the wall... Whose idea was this ??? I was unable to block it out and I nearly gave up..... Not to be repeated PLEASE!

Background music -why?

The background music is loud, resdundant and a little annoying, making it very hard to hear and understand the narrative.
The story might be good but this recorded version is just bad.

Hörgenuss im Stil von Sir A. C. Doyle

Es macht gar nichts, dass die Story nicht vom Originalautor ist. Im Stil der herrlichen Geschichten von Sherlock Holmes und Dr. Watson habe ich das Hörbuch sehr genossen. der Sprecher ist exzellent gewählt und passt zur Geschichte. Obwohl Englisch, konnte ich gut folgen. Eine kleine Anmerkung am Rande: Das Hörbuch sollte nicht zusätzlich mit Hintergrundmusik hinterlegt werden, Sie ist zwar leise, aber passt nicht und stört nur die Konzentration. Unter dem Strich finde ich das Buch sehr empfehlenswert.
