In the year 1878 I took my degree of Doctor of Medicine of the University of London, and proceeded to Netley to go through the course prescribed for surgeons in the army. Having completed my studies there, I was duly attached to the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers as Assistant Surgeon. The regiment was stationed in India at the time, and before I could join it, the second Afghan war had broken out. On landing at Bombay, I learned that my corps had advanced through the passes, and was already deep in the enemy's country. I followed, however, with many other officers who were in the same situation as myself, and succeeded in reaching Candahar in safety, where I found my regiment, and at once entered upon my new duties.

The best telling of "A Study in Scarlet" ever.

Nice to revisit an old favorite
Note: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I am a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. I have read this story more than once, and I have listened to other performances of the story. I will not tolerate anyone not doing him justice in an audiobook production. This was a pretty good reading (not as good as the Stephen Fry production, but few can match him).There were a few times that the pace of the reading seemed too slow (odd pauses before words, etc.), but overall it was well done.
