Though Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is best known for his detective stories, he also wrote other short stories that are now considered masterpieces of mystery and suspense. In some of the stories, a suppressed uneasiness gradually builds up and evolves into sheer horror; in others, the story line unexpectedly changes and comes to an unexpected conclusion. In “The New Catacomb,” deceit and terror are buried in the deep recesses of a Roman archaeological site. Download and start listening now!

    " Very entertaining short story! Of course, I felt like I had seen this in a movie with Vincent Price. I could see the ending coming but it didn't lessen the enjoyment! "

About the Author
Author Arthur Conan Doyle

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.
