Publisher's Summary

The Adventure of the Empty House is the lead story in The Return of Sherlock Holmes first published in 1903. The author had attempted to kill off Sherlock Holmes in The Adventure of the Final Problem. However, there was such a public outcry that he relented and brought him "back from the dead" in this ingenious story.


Audible Editor Reviews

From the first exuberant sentence, Walter Covell's performance of this Sherlock Holmes mystery is perfect. His jolly, cracking voice is laced with amusement; his English accent put to delightful use. "The Adventure of the Empty House" is an all-time favorite excerpted from the larger collection entitled The Return of Sherlock Holmes.  But hearing this story out loud compounds its charm - the wittiness of Conan Doyle's language is underlined by Covell's narration; the plot's adventure heightened by the sheer enthusiasm of Covell's voice.
