Editorial Reviews

When Dr. Watson is called to the home of his friend Sherlock Holmes, he is shocked to find that the detective is gravely ill, apparently stricken with a highly contagious disease. Holmes asks Watson to fetch Culverton Smith, a supposed expert on the disease whom Holmes had once accused of murder. In an ironic twist, Holmes is afflicted with the same disease that killed Smith's nephew, and the two have a spirited confrontation. Arthur Conan Doyle crafts a clever narrative that David Timson imbues with great intrigue, making The Adventure of the Dying Detective an endlessly compelling listen.
