This volume presents some of Conan Doyle’s unduly neglected masterworks. Each begins in a quietly factual way, making all the more dramatic the crescendo of fear and puzzlement that ensues as each new circumstance is revealed. Even without his supremely logical brain child, Sherlock Holmes, Conan Doyle shows that his tales are unbeatable for thrills and excitement.

This is a great opportunity for the listener to discover a new facet of this master’s ability to mystify and enthrall.

I'm an avid Sherlock Holmes fan, and once I'd gone through those stories, I decided to check out some of this author's other works. Quick stories, interesting, and a lot of fun. Ages 12+
