Editorial Reviews

In this collection of four stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, narrator Carl Rigg uses his full-bodied voice to great effect, shading in the sinister tones of these chilling tales. In "Lot No. 249", an ancient Egyptian mummy comes to murderous life, while in "The Horror of the Heights", a notebook reveals the reason for the deaths of aviators attempting to break a height record. In "The Terror of Blue John Gap" and "The Sealed Room", our protagonists are drawn into mysterious events and forced to deal with their shocking consequences. Rigg builds up the horror with a subtle touch; listeners will not find any cheap shocks in his careful performance.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Four Short Stories collection.
In these stories, Conan Doyle draws the listener in to experience drama, suspense and, ultimately, the shock of surprise. Here is a unique combination of a famous analytical intellect telling spine-tingling tales against a background of turn-of-the-century England. Nothing is quite as it seems. What is the secret of "Lot No. 249"? What lies in wait for an aviator in the stratosphere? And what lies inside "The Sealed Room"?
