Editorial Reviews

Long-time Sherlock Holmes aficionados and new fans alike will enjoy this thrilling performance of "The Adventure of the Second Stain", originally published in The Return of Sherlock Holmes. This exciting whodunit follows the titular Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick Dr. John Watson as they attempt to track down a vitally important government document which, if revealed to the public, could result in nothing less than full-out war in Europe.
Doyle knows exactly how to maximize suspense in his enchanting mysteries, and voice actor David Timson takes his cues from the text, guiding listeners through the twists and turns of this edge-of-your-seat detective story with his lush, dramatic voice and peerless pacing.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from The Return of Sherlock Holmes III collection.
Once again Arthur Conan Doyle presents a series of cases which baffle the police, but are no match for Sherlock Holmes and his trusty companion Dr. Watson.
In "Black Peter", the peace of rural Sussex is disturbed by the discovery of a seafarer's body pinned to the wall of his hut with a harpoon. In the "Golden Pince-Nez", a young man is found dead clutching a pair of spectacles, yet he had perfect sight. Who is the short-sighted murderer?
In the "Missing Three-Quarter", Holmes takes on a novel case when a Rugby player goes missing the day before a major University match. A woman tied to a chair; her husband clubbed to death with a poker; a case of robbery with violence? But all is not what it seems in the case of the "Abbey Grange".
The series ends with the "Second Stain" where a top secret document that could lead Britain into war goes missing. Holmes is put to the test to save his country as well as his reputation.
