Originally published in a 1892 edition of Strand Magazine, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle was one of twelve short stories to be included in the first Sherlock Holmes collection, the 1892 The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. In this tale, Holmes and Watson investigate two cases-one involving a Christmas goose and a hat and the other, the theft of the Blue Carbuncle, a priceless jewel. The cases are quickly revealed to be intertwined, and the spirit of the holidays influences the tale's end. This recording of The Adventures of the Blue Carbuncle was recorded as part of Dreamscape's Classic Christmas Stories: A Collection of Timeless Holiday Tales.
