If you're unfamiliar with this story, you can't do better than to choose this virtuoso narration by David Timson. It's astounding, even for an actor whose narrations are consistently of the highest quality.
A lovely young lady comes to Holmes to help her solve a mystery: she has been receiving a pearl of great price each year from an anonymous donor.
You'll see Holmes at his best and worst, Watson at his most chilvalrous and romantic. An eccentric valetudinarian, a gang of criminals, foreign lands, violence, adventure, and a man with a most unusual sidekick all figure in this engaging tale.
Highly recommended to all who love Victorian classics and good mysteries!

I am a big fan of David Timson's audio performances, he makes it look easy! He lends terrific narration to Watson, Holmes and all of the other characters in The Sign of Four. I hadn't read this story in quite a while and it was relieving to see it was as good as I remember it! The violins that accompany the end/beginning of each part really adds to the performance. This story is highly recommended - don't hesitate and get it now!

I have started to realise what an obnoxious prig Sherlock Holmes is - I think that the age in which this was written has been outgrown, and we have moved on from the attitude of the day. I must say that this is the first time I have really realised what an obnoxious prig the man is, everything is about 'How clever I am' - as I say, time has moved on!
An OK mystery, nicely read - but my last Sherlock Holmes I fear!

A first class story and the narration was one of the best I've listened to for a while.
I loved the goodies and disliked the villains except for one, who I felt had been hard done by.
Anyone who likes a short (ish) story would like this. Ideal for a car journey.
