Blackstone Audiobooks is pleased to present the first audio recordings ever of the only two Holmes plays written by his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This new, specially commissioned production of the Hollywood Theater of the Ear stars Audie Award-winning readers Martin Jarvis (as Sherlock Holmes) and Kristoffer Tabori (as Dr. Watson).In Sherlock Holmes, the Napoleon of crime, Professor Moriarity, plots with would-be blackmailers to have Holmes killed. And the normally love-proof Holmes falls for an exceptional woman.

What is the secret of the shocking death of poor Enid's sister, whose dying words were, the speckled band? Only Holmes can find the answer and save a helpless girl from certain death in The Speckled Band.

When Holmes retired, it created a financial crisis for his friend Watson, who owes money to mobsters who want either their cash or his blood. The surprising upshot is: Ghastly Double Murder in Famed Detective's Flat, a one-act comedy by producer-director Yuri Rasovsky, here receiving its audiobook premiere.

    " I really enjoyed the two plays by Conan Doyle...the third by Yuri Rasovsky was awful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adonna | 3/23/2012

    " ...or rather, I listened to this audio book. I didn't realize that 'The Speckled Band' was created as a play, or that Conan Doyle wrote a play with another author. Very entertaining and recommended for Sherlock Holmes fans. "

    " Purists may find fault with these dramatic renditions, but for fans of Sherlock Holmes who can never get enough, this Blackstone audio book is pure entertainment. Well acted with background music and sound effects, these plays adapted for audio are a must-hear. "

    " Absolutely brilliant! I cannot wait to read all of them! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 5/4/2011

    " This is an excellent story of mystery and suspense, and it provides details of the technology of which existed or was introduced in the time of the nineteenth century. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 5/4/2011

    " I really loved reading this book. It is something that could make one's brain work the way Sherlock Holmes's brain works.... it can put one completely in detective's world.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 shygirl1994 | 5/1/2011

    " Let's face it, who can't love Holmes! =P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 4/28/2011

    " CSI is left in the dust... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 4/25/2011

    " Who doesn't love Holmes?

    Like Wuthering Heights, this book is also good in that if you read only the first half, you've already done the best part. The Holmes stories really drop off in quality after Conan Doyle decided to bring him back from the dead for some $$$.

About the Author

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.
