This volume presents some of Arthur Conan Doyle’s unduly neglected masterworks of suspense. Each begins in a quietly factual way, which makes all the more dramatic the crescendo of fear and puzzlement that ensues as each startling new circumstance is revealed. Even without his supremely logical brainchild 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 the master’s ability to mystify and enthrall.

Included in this collection are six tales of terror:

“The Horror of the Heights”
“The Leather Funnel”
“The New Catacomb”
“The Case of Lady Sannox”
“The Terror of Blue John Gap”
“The Brazilian Cat”

And seven tales of mystery:

“The Lost Special”
“The Beetle-Hunter”
“The Man with the Watches”
“The Japanned Box”
“The Black Doctor”
“The Jew’s Breastplate”
“The Nightmare Room”

Listener Opinions

    " Man, the A. C. Doyle can knock 'em out. Yeah, there are a few lackluster mystery types towards the end, but there are some genuinely creepy things here. Question for discussion: why aren't we scared of doppelgangers anymore? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ivan | 11/21/2010

    " Fun short stories, some "supernatural," some not. But not as good as the Sherlock Holmes stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jason | 3/4/2010

    " Conan Doyle really was a master of the short story, wasn't he? Nearly the equal of Poe. "

    " Not Doyle's greatest works but some decent spooky stories and a couple of freaky monsters although one tale pulled a Scooby Doo on me. "
