A colonel receives five seeds in the mail---and dies within weeks. A young bride disappears immediately after her wedding. An old hat and a Christmas goose are the only clues to a stolen jewel.

No case is too tricky for the world's most famous sleuth and his incredible powers of deduction. This gripping collection includes many of the famous cases---and great strokes of brilliance---that make the legendary detective one of fiction's most popular creations.

This version is complete

Any additional comments?

I don't want to nitpick Tad's excellent review, but he is inaccurate on one point.<br/><br/>This version, as of April 2012, includes all twelve short stories collected in 1892 as "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes", including "The Red-Headed League," and "The Adventure of the Speckled Band."

Great narration, but missing a couple

Simon Prebble does an excellent job narrating this first collection of Sherlock Holmes stories. No complaints there. But the collection is marred by Tantor's decision to omit the two stories (Speckled Band and Red-Headed League) they'd already made available as "bonuses" on two of the novels.

In other words, if you want all of the short stories, you have to buy the whole set of recordings, including the four novels. (I'm planning to do that, but others may have preferred not to.) There's something to said, too, for being able to listen to the stories in their published sequence. This unfortunate marketing ploy makes that less convenient.

A classic rendition of the famous stories

Narrator Simon Prebble captures the spirit of Victorian Britain in this audio version of Conan Doyle's classic tales. The cadence of his voice adds to the suspension in the various stories, and adds a real depth to the twists when they inevitably appear during the final chapters. Much recommended for listening in bite sized chunks, such as short commutes.

Simon Prebble is the best Sherlock Holmes Narrator

Sorry Derek Jacobi, but Simon Prebble's Holmes and Watson voices are far superior - he is excellent
