  1. Stacy Bender

    First off, this book is only an hour long. Not the almost 10 of the description.

    Second, the performance was good. We like the dramatization style. – only wished the narrator remembered they were Not on stage. We felt we where getting yelled at.

    Third, the author watched too many black & while Sherlock Holmes movies and never bothered to read the books. The movies turned Watson into a buffoon, but Ian Shimwell raised the bar and made Watson an a**h*l*.
    The short story itself is rather unimaginative and childish. The author couldn’t even be bothered to name the tigress the old standby of Jasmine. He called her Tigress. That’s like calling a woman, Woman.
    I’m not even going to list the historical inaccuracies.

  2. Rosemary HUGHES

    With the redoubtable Dr Watson, Holmes looks at a murder of gentleman of some note. All clues seem to point to the tiger from the circus, but Holmes doesn’t believe that to be so.
    A rather light hearted theatrical performance for Holmes and Watson.

  3. Christopher Connell

    Ian Shimwell returns with more adventures in this script series. This one definitely peaked my interest as I’m curious about the clue left at the end, can’t wait to pick up the next book to see what the conclusion will be.
