Since Doyle created the immortal Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson, no other mystery writer has come close to eclipsing him as the standard bearer in crime fiction. A brilliant London-based consulting detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess and renowned for his skillful use of astute observation, deductive reasoning, and inference to solve difficult cases. This collection includes twelve of Holmes’ most famous cases: A Scandal in Bohemia, “The Red-Headed League,” “A Case of Identity,” “The Boscombe Valley Mystery,” “The Five Orange Pips,” “The Man with the Twisted Lip,” “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle,” “The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” “The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb,” “The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor,” “The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet,” and “The Adventure of the Copper Beeches.”

    Times (London)

  • “In a gravelly voice, Ralph Cosham becomes the voice of Dr. Watson as he narrates twelve of his adventures with Sherlock Holmes...Cosham brings these immortal tales to life once again, replete with details both significant and trivial and the sights and sounds of late-nineteenth-century London...Cosham captures the genius of Sherlock Holmes, the faithful friendship of Dr. Watson, the language of their time, and their zest for adventure.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Greg | 2/16/2014

    " I was not sure if I would enjoy this title, but it fit in overall with my goal to read more "classics" this year and the short story medium seems to require less investment that a full blown novel. As it turns out, I ended up being pleasantly surprised. It is true there is not much action if you require that to maintain interest in a book, but this book kept my interest nonetheless as I found myself trying to figure out the solution to a mystery before the end. "

    " Delicious and fantastic, my first time reading. Will definitely read again. Read the e-book, I would like to get a hardcopy with illustrations. Also, it was nice to picture the pretty people from the new (crap) movies in the old (awesome) stories. "
