Publisher's Summary

Holmes and Watson arrive at Trinity College, summoned by a message that rugby star, Godfrey Staunton, has disappeared. Staunton is the key man on Overton's rugby team, and they will never win the important match if he cannot be found. Holmes admits that sport is a bit outside his ken, but he takes this case as seriously as any other. It proves not all elementary.


Audible Editor Reviews

"The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter" contains two classic elements of a Sherlock Holmes story: a missing person and sly deduction (the results of which are naturally withheld until the last minute). But it's also remarkable for its less common use of a scent-hound and for a reference to the famous detective's cocaine usage. As usual Holmes' right-hand man, Dr. Watson, narrates this adventure, which first appeared in the 1903-1904 collection The Return of Sherlock Holmes. And who better to narrate this essential piece of the canon than the late Edward Raleigh, whose inimitable refinement in performance earned him numerous awards, including the Golden Voice.
