The Adventure of the Speckled Band is the 8th of 12 stories collected in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. It was originally published in Strand Magazine in 1892. Doyle thought that this was his best Holmes story. In fact, he thought so much of it that he wrote and produced a play based on the story. The play, originally called The Stonor Case, differed from the story in several details but was essentially the same. Download and start listening now!

    " A free download from the app store to my iPhone. I wanted to check out whether I'd like reading on my phone. I like it for traveling, but at home, I still prefer having a book. "

    " A shortie, but a goodie! :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Devon | 1/3/2014

    " A much darker tale for the great detective and doctor. I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure and would recommend it to any mystery reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Yoak | 12/25/2013

    " This is another of the stories that I remembered clearly. It was extremely nostalgic even if the story is rather insubstantial "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristine | 12/20/2013

    " Good mystery book...keeps you guessing to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/5/2013

    " Another enjoyeable read. I feel like almost anything I would have to say would give away the plot - and I don't want to do that - so I will just say I enjoyed this and thought the ending was satisfying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Troubleclef | 10/22/2013

    " I didn't like this story too much, but I did like how I was almost completely incorrect about the whole case. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Koivu | 9/19/2013

    " Sinister dealings and Holmes in action! The Speckled Band gets Sherlock Holmes out of his Baker Street residence for a night and shows that he's quick in more ways than one. This may have been the very first Holmes story I ever read if I'm remembering correctly and it was a joy to read again! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kanna | 7/5/2013

    " As always nice and gripping mystery "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 6/13/2013

    " I enjoyed this book concerning Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson coming to the aid of a young girl, who is in fear for her life. Her sister has died for no reason, and she fears she is next. This was one of my favorite stories, and made it to his TV series. A very good read for all of Mr. Holmes fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ragne | 5/1/2013

    " An excellent story. In this story, you'll find both action and mystery. Several of the Holmes-stories are quite easy to figure out early on, not so here. I got involved with the characters, and had to really think to figure it out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 3/25/2013

    " I really liked this Sherlock Holmes short story, was really interesting and the method of murder was certainly different :) "

    " The great Holmes is put to the test once again to solve a mysterious death, well read it to find out the outcome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Mustread | 10/28/2011

    " Great reminder of the joy of reading Arthur Conan Doyle and "seeing" Sherlock Holmes solve a mysterious case involving, gypsies, murder, love and marriage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zoltán Gecse | 8/1/2011

    " It wasn't as good as I expected. Some of the stories were good, but nothing extraordinary. The most annoying part of the short stories were the circumlocutions, and the overmistificated status and case-solved skilles of Sherlock Holmes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keri | 5/30/2011

    " BBC Radio plays, both amazing AND homoerotic as the day is long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sydney | 5/29/2011

    " it was amazing how he solved some of those mysteries "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ram | 5/27/2011

    " probably the greatest detective fiction of all time - anytime read, multiple time read as well - Sherlock Holmes will never go out of fashion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Homa | 5/26/2011

    " This book was the most amusing book i had read this year "

    " Each story is quite clever and entertaining, they are pretty addicting to me, once you finish one its hard not to go on to another. "
