The Last Sherlock Holmes Story, by Michael Dibdin

Before Dibdin’s “Aurelio Zen” thrillers, he wrote this 1978 debut novel using Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson characters. The author captures the tone of and uses details from the original stories. However, he also incorporates an actual series of 19th century crimes and 20th century psychology to move the plot forward. I listened to the book on CD and enjoyed narrator Robert Glenister’s interpretation of the individual characters.
