The legendary Sherlock Holmes is on the trail of some particularly slippery thieves in this collection of 3 classic tales. Motivated by greed and jealousy, the criminal in "The Adventure of the Priory School" aims to kidnap a young lord - but causes a far greater tragedy. In "The Red-Headed League," Holmes catches one of London's most daring criminals while investigating the strange business of the Red-Headed League, a suspicious organization that gives its members money for "nominal work." An unusual sequence of events in "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" leads Holmes to locate the precious jewel owned by the Countess of Morcar. The stories are read by a true master, Edward Hardwicke, a talented actor who plays Sherlock Holmes's associate, Dr. Watson, as seen on the popular PBS series Mystery!
