My edition of Thrilling Stories of the Railway is an abridged audiobook with Benedict Cumberbatch reading a selection of Victor L Whitechurch s short stories which feature Thorpe Hazell Hazell is an eccentric gentleman detective of private means who considers himself primarily a railway enthusiast and collector of first editions He is also a vegetarian and exercise fiend often extolling the virtues of both to anyone who will sit still long enough to listen The five short stories chosen for this audiobook were I think a fair sampling and give listeners a good idea of what kind of detective Hazell is Info on the web would seem to indicate that Whitechurch wanted to make Hazell as different as possible from Sherlock Holmes I would agree that he s differentbut not that different Holmes has a vast knowledge of various subjects from cigar ash to criminals to various sciences Hazell has an encyclopedic knowledge of everything to do with railways Holmes is eccentric in his habits keeping tobacco in a slipper sticking bills to his mantle with a knife sometimes not eating or sleeping while he s on a case Hazell has his bizarre exercises whirling his arms about like a windmill often in public and his vegetarian lifestyle The stories are also very Holmes like because Hazell tends to keep clues to himself and spring the solution on us at the endWhitechurch does spin a good tale though and the BBC production dramatized the stories well Benedict Cumberbatch is also an extraordinarily good reader He brings each character to life and manages a broad range of accents and inflections to differentiate them In The Affair of the German Dispatch Box Hazell must devise an ingenius plan to retrieve a highly sensitive document which has been stolen from the British government It has found its way into the hands of the German attache and will be guarded on all sides on a train journey He ll need to be uick to steal it back before it reaches the German Ambassador In Sir Gilbert Murrell s Picture an entire train car containing valuable paintings disappears from a goods train Not only disappears but somehow it has been removed from the middle of the train while the train was in motion Hazell s skills and knowledge is sorely needed In The Affair of the Corridor Express it is a multimillionaire s son who disappears from a moving train Hazell retraces the journey to find the boy before it s too late In The Stolen Necklace a lady begs Hazell to help when the diamond necklace that she borrowed is stolen from her suitcase Her greatest fear is that the man she loves who is notoriously short of funds is responsible She hopes Hazell can prove her wrong when he retrieves the necklace In The Affair of the Birmingham Bankrumors have caused a run on a Midlands bank so cash reserves are sent for by train Bank officials suspect an old rival to be behind the rumors and Hazell must find a way to keep the funds safe from train robberyIt is always a treat to listen to Benedict Cumberbatch and these stories made for enjoyable trips to and from work and a halfFirst posted on my blog My Reader s Block Please reuest permission before reposting Thanks
