The legendary Sherlock Holmes is on the trail of some particularly slippery thieves in this collection of 3 classic tales. Motivated by greed and jealousy, the criminal in The Adventure of the Priory School aims to kidnap a young lord - but causes a far greater tragedy. In The Red-Headed League, Holmes catches one of London's most daring criminals while investigating the strange business of the Red-Headed League, a suspicious organization that gives its members money for nominal work. An unusual sequence of events in The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle leads Holmes to locate the precious jewel owned by the Countess of Morcar. The stories are read by a true master, Edward Hardwicke, a talented actor who plays Sherlock Holmes's associate, Dr. Watson, as seen on the popular PBS series Mystery!

    " Same narrator as "Three Tales of Intrigue," but this set didn't have the volume problem of the other one. It was easy to hear, and the narrator is fabulous. My only complaint is that there aren't more stories in the set! "

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
