Publisher's Summary

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes changed crime fiction forever and helped launch not just a popular character but an enduring legend who is just as loved today.
This audio book was narrated in London by experienced British stage actor Robert Maskell at a voice recording studio renowned for high production values.
The stories were originally featured not in a book at all, but were written as installments in a London magazine called The Strand.
Penned as always from the point of view of the ever-loyal Dr. Watson, these concise tales shed early light on Sherlock Holmes' analytical genius.
Throughout the 12 stories we see Holmes at his incisive and eccentric best. All groups within Victorian society feature, from European aristocrats to travelling Gypsies, mad doctors to innocent ladies. These are truly classic stories and a perfect introduction to the fascinating world of Sherlock Holmes.
The stories are presented in order that they were originally published:

1 A Scandal in Bohemia
2 The Adventure of the Red-Headed League
3 A Case of Identity
4 The Boscombe Valley Mystery
5 The Five Orange Pips
6 The Man with the Twisted Lip
7 The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
8 The Adventure of the Speckled Band
9 The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb
10 The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor
11 The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet

Thoroughly Enjoyable Version of these Classics

I really enjoyed these stories. I had not before read or heard them all and they were all first rate tales of Sherlock Holmes at his best. The Man with the Twisted Lip is the only one that I guessed right away. All the others took me well into the story to get a bead on the real culprit. My favorites were A Scandal in Bohemia because of the ending, The Adventure of the Red-Headed League and the Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb largely due to the impeccable narration, and the Adventure of the Beryl Coronet because of the outcome.

Robert Maskell really does an excellent rendition of these stories. His tone, speed, and cadence and the way he reads the exciting parts are really unsurpassed. And his voices are beyond compare. At times, I forgot only one person was narrating!

I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
