His Last Bow: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of previously published Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, including the titular short story, "His Last Bow. The War Service of Sherlock Holmes" (1917). The collection's first US edition adjusts the anthology's subtitle to Some Later Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes. All editions contain a brief preface, by "John H. Watson, M.D.", that assures readers that as of the date of publication (1917), Holmes is long retired from his profession of detective but is still alive and well, albeit suffering from a touch of rheumatism. - Summary by David Clarke (7 hr 10 min)

Thanks David.

David Clarke is synonymous with Sherlock Holmes. I find it difficult to listen to anyone else after David's perfect narration of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books. Thank you very much for your time. It gives many hours of pleasure.

I have listened to as many Sherlock Holmes stories as I can that are read by David Clarke. He is one of the best voice actors/ readers (I’m unsure what the correct term is) on LibriVox. He speaks clearly and does little accents when the character calls for it. My hat off to you sir, well done.

Suberb reading, excellent stories

Very well read. Calm and easy to understand, but still very lively and with much feeling. The book itself is a typical good Sherlock Holmes. I will miss it after listening to all of them.

I am a fan so I love all the sherlock books and short stories. David Clark is probably the best reader of them I have found on librivox. He has an amazing talent for reading stories he uses the proper use of grammar and speaks clearly and has a wide array if voices he can do and is very consistent with them as he goes from character to character he brings these books alive. I often feel like I'm listening to a cast.
