The late Walter Covell, master audiobook performer, brings his rich catalogue of voices to this stellar performance of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s A Study in Scarlet. In 1886, 27-year-old Doyle wrote a novel that introduced the characters of Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective, and his friend and colleague, Dr. Watson, to the public. That novel is here presented in audiobook form.
Taking the listener on an expedition from Scotland Yard to the Mormon Territory in young America, the novel also introduces the "Baker Street Irregulars" and the magnifying glass that was Holmes’ trademark. Three novels and over 50 short stories later, Holmes, Watson, and that magnifying glass are synonymous with crime-solving through deductive reasoning. Listener, A Study in Scarlet is the original.
