Greed, betrayal, and vengeance set the stage for this Sir Arthur Conan Doyle classic. Sherlock Holmes is rescued from boredom by the strange case of Jonathan Small and the tragedy of Pondicherry Lodge. The mystery leads Holmes and Dr. Watson into an intricate plot regarding a lost treasure belonging to four convicts on the Andaman Islands.
At the outset of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Sign of Four, the ever-faithful Dr. Watson debates confronting his boss - the brilliant Sherlock Holmes - about his drug problem. The Sign of Four is the second installment in the Holmes series and greatly expands upon the emotional and spiritual sides of the great detective. Performed by British master, Patrick Tull, whose deep voice and impeccable dialect carry the listener, The Sign of Four features a secret pact made between corrupt prison guards and four convicts, and a mysterious string of pearls received by a client of Holmes. While not necessarily a success upon initial publication, The Sign of Four has been dramatically adapted at least 12 times.

It's A.C.D. What can I say?
- Steven "Lover of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mystery, and westerns in all media, including old-time radio dramatizations."
Sherlock is always a winner
Patrick Tull is one of my favorite readers - I'd be happy to hear him read the phone book (as they say)!
I love Sherlock Holmes stories, so really the whole thing was great, though I love it when he comes in to Baker St in disguise and Watson doesn't recognize him.
His voices were stellar, as is the energy of his reading - he dramatizes without it seeming forced or unnatural
