Publisher's Summary

As a dense yellow fog swirls through the streets of London, a deep melancholy has descended on Sherlock Holmes, who sits in a cocaine-induced haze at 221B Baker Street. His mood is only lifted by a visit from a beautiful but distressed young woman---Mary Morstan, whose father vanished ten years before. Four years later she began to receive an exquisite gift every year: a large, lustrous pearl. Now she has had an intriguing invitation to meet her unknown benefactor and urges Holmes and Watson to accompany her. In the ensuing investigation---which involves a wronged woman, a stolen hoard of Indian treasure, a wooden-legged ruffian, a helpful dog, and a love affair---even the jaded Holmes is moved to exclaim, "Isn't it gorgeous!" This audiobook includes the bonus Sherlock Holmes story "The Red-Headed League."

best one yet

the third Sherlock book I've listened to and this time the motive of the killer didn't take longer to explain than the rest of the book.
