Publisher's Summary

This is a story from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes VI collection.
In "The Final Problem", perhaps the greatest of the short stories of Sherlock Holmes, the English detective encounters his most formidable rival, Professor Moriarty. 'The Napoleon of Crime' is how Holmes describes his adversary to his faithful companion, Dr Watson, as they move to the ultimate confrontation at the Reichenbach Falls.


Audible Editor Reviews

In "The Adventure of the 'Gloria Scott'", Watson recounts Sherlock Holmes' earliest case. An undergrad sleuth, Holmes solves the mystery behind his friend's father's death by decoding a secret note. This particular tale inspired the third season opener of the hit TV show Sherlock and the 1946 film Dressed to Kill. David Timson's voice is pitch-perfect for the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle canon. Timson's performance, replete with lilting British accent, builds excitement and suspense throughout. Timson knows his genre and works with it to keep audiences hanging on Doyle's clever plot twists.
