Doctor Watson, returned fresh from Afghanistan with an injured arm and shattered nerves from illness, moves to London on a pension. He is introduced to Sherlock Holmes, with whom he rooms for some time. As he is skeptical about Holmes’ self-professed deductive powers, Holmes allows him to tag along on a case that the police cannot solve. Needless to say, Holmes thoroughly impresses Watson with his deductive powers and promises to keep records of all of Holmes’ cases so that his excellent detecting doesn’t go unrewarded.

The first part of A Study in Scarlet leads to the arrest of the murderer, and the second part provides the story of the murderer’s life and motives, previously unexplained. Part two takes the listener across the ocean to the original settlement of Salt Lake City in Utah and through a story of hardship, love, greed, Mormons, and revenge. Listeners are then returned to London, where Holmes sorts out the explanations.

    " I really enjoyed Sherlock Holmes when I was a kid, but that was from movies and TV series. I had never read any of the books, until now. While not literary, this is a fun read. "

    " Well the 1st two chapters were boring as they were just an introduction about Sherlock Holmes but dude, the rest of the book rocks. Holmes is so clever, must say. The starting of Part-2 was boring but then it became good. For other details -Read the Book. "
