Editorial Reviews

From Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, this classic episode was published in 1892. Commissionaire Peterson finds a carbuncle in his Christmas goose's neck, which leads the ever-curious Holmes to investigate who stole this jewel and just how it got inside the goose. Walter Zimmerman and Walter Covell's performances are right on target for this adventure tale. They smoothly navigate a variety of characters, from upper-crust British elite to the gruff downtrodden. Together, they bring joy to this quirky story. Besides, with their flawless diction and pacing, following this mystery is elementary!

Loved it!

This is a great story. Short and interesting. I'll be looking for more Doyle books, especially narrated in this fashion.
