Overview

The Adventure of the Cardboard Box: With accompanying facts, 10 illustrations, and free Audio Links by Arthur Conan Doyle

It�s a hot summer�s day; a note arrives at 221b Baker Street from an Inspector Lestrade, of Scotland yard, informing Holmes of a most gruesome crime. An elderly recluse, Miss Susan Cushing, receives a package with horrific contents, a cardboard box that contains two human ears, preserved and packed in coarse salt. Lestrade plays down the severity of the crime, suspecting a mere practical joke by three medical students who were once evicted by Miss Cushing because of their unruly behaviour, but Holmes suspects foul play of a murderous sort. Using his keen investigatory instincts and accompanied by Dr Watson, Holmes begins to unravel a case of adulterous betrayal and homicidal consequences.
Can Holmes and Watson, once again, solve the case?
