The Sign of Four is the second story by Conan Doyle about the exploits of Sherlock Holmes.

From the moment Mary Morstan tells Holmes about the mysterious disappearance of her father and the yearly gift of a pearl from an unknown benefactor, Holmes and his companion Watson are involved in an exotic tale of stolen treasure, secret oaths and murder, culminating in a breath-taking chase down the Thames. Holmes is on top form, and Watson falls in love. David Timson won the Audiobook of the Year Award for his reading of this, the first Sherlock Holmes novel.

    " struggled to finish "

    " Good way to introduce students to 'classics'! I definitely miss reading descriptions and visualizing them in my head, but I think the idea of taking older stories and making them into graphic novels is a great way to introduce teenagers to stories that they might not normally read. "

    " The art is astounding but I'd forgotten the plot hinged on a "hideous native." "

    " Really fun comic that is a great interpretation of the original story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie | 11/16/2012

    " This was a decent re-telling of this classic suspence thriller, but it was missing just that: suspense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy Lo | 7/21/2012

    " I read this and then I read the short story. This captured all the important words and moments and emotions of the story. "

    " Very fun. I like this as a graphic novel, it works. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 12/26/2011

    " Although this developed more of a storyline for Watson, I didn't think it was as good as the first one. (Another classic down!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margot | 7/24/2011

    " Oh, colonialism. You've given us such delightful mystery stories. Thanks for that. "

    " I read it in a couple of (the very wee small) hours this morning and couldn't put it down! "

    " Sadly, the old-school racism makes this a rather painful read (or listen, in this case). Otherwise it would have been well-paced, with some nice insights into the characters of both Holmes and Watson. "

    " 2nd Holmes Novel, a murder and the 1/2 million£ treasure of Agra

    " Quite breezy. Going to read all the Sherlock Holmes mysteries now. "

    " De todos os livros de Arthur Conan Doyle, esse é o meu favorito. "Eu sou Sherlock Holmes. Meu trabalho é saber o que os outros não sabem" Sherlock e sua ciência da dedução me encantam! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 3/28/2011

    " A story wid enuf amount of horror, mystery nd deadliness...I dnt like Holmes taking drugs.....his self praisin adds 2 his character...nd he cn b compassionate weneva he wants 2....nd I luv his way wid disguises... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Flip | 3/26/2011

    " I enjoyed the story for the most part, but I found the last chapter to be nothing but drudgery. The story does give additional background for later stories, however. It's worth reading for just that, I suppose. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tushar | 3/20/2011

    " This is the second story of Sherlock Holmes that I read, the first being A Study in Scarlet. The story started fine and Sherlock solved most of the case during the first part of the story. But the ending, in my opinion, was a bit stretched with all the explaining done by Jonathan Small. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 3/19/2011

    " My favorite part of the book was the end when Sherlock explained his logic and how he solved the case. Everything becomes so simple and matter of fact when he explains it. Fun read. "
