  • The Judgement of Sherlock Holmes
    The Judgement of Sherlock Holmes
    The Judgement of Sherlock Holmes

    Sherlock Holmes had many secrets. This is the greatest of them. Our knowledge of the life and career of Mr Sherlock Holmes is necessarily partial and inexact. Riddled with lacunae and ambiguities, its parameters are defined chiefly by what his friend and colleague, Dr John Watson, saw fit to record. One era in particular – those enigmatic years in which, believed dead at the Reichenbach Falls, the Great Detective roved the world incognito – has been shrouded in obscurity and doubt, the particulars of that time too terrible and too strange to be set down in full. At least, that is, until now… Part One: Poppyland It is October, 1921. Dr John Watson, now almost seventy, has accustomed himself to a life of retirement. He is surprised, then, to encounter his old friend, Mr Sherlock Holmes, rising out of the early evening mist like a wraith. There are things they have to discuss, he says, matters from the distant past. It is important, he says, that Watson hears at last a full account of what happened to Holmes during his years away from England when, believed by the world to be dead following his battle with Professor Moriarty, he travelled incognito overseas… Part Two: At the Gates of Shambhala 1892. At the heart of Tibet, a world away from London, where a grieving Dr Watson is battling demons of his own, stands an ancient monastery, abandoned for generations but now the source of rumours of the most peculiar and terrible kind. For strangers have lately invaded this place and pressed it into service for their dark schemes. Those who dwell nearby have come to live in fear and sorrow. What good fortune, then, that a certain noted Norwegian explorer should happen to have found himself in the vicinity… Part Three: The Man in the Moonlight Mr Sherlock Holmes is the kind of man whom it is practically impossible to imagine ever having been a child, so fixed and set is his nature. Yet even he was once an infant, his childhood as fraught with peril as his adult life. That time, long past, still haunts him – one element most of all, the figure of a stranger, standing without and gazing upwards, his thin, pale face haloed by moonlight. Part Four: The Tragedy of Pargetter Square Here is where it ends: with a murderer in Pargetter Square, with the detective and a tyrant come face to face in Baker Street, with desperate ambition and wickedness incarnate, with an assassin’s bullet and with old friends working, unknowingly, as one. Yet what is an ending if not a beginning by a different name?

  • The Hound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
    The Hound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
    The Hound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery

    "The last red streaks had faded away in the west and night settled upon the moor. A few faint stars were gleaming in a violet sky. Watson and I gazed out over the shadowy moor, half silver and half gloom. A distant howl arose from the shadowy depths, menacing, almost musical, rising and falling like the low constant murmur of the sea, the hound!" Complete and unabridged, in its original serial format from THE STRAND MAGAZINE, The Hound of the Baskervilles is a superb audiobook. It remains one of Arthur Conan Doyle's most popular works.

  • Adventures of the Dying Detective: Sherlock Holmes

    Adventures of the Dying Detective: Sherlock Holmes

    Dr. Watson is called to 221B Baker Street to tend Holmes, who is unwell and dying of a rare Asian disease contracted while he was working on a case at Rotherhithe. Watson is shocked, having heard nothing about his friend’s illness. Another classic adventure from Sherlock Holmes, a great addition to the collection.

  • Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow
    Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow
    Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow

    His Last Bow was meant to be the last of the Holmes stories, and is given the subtitle “An Epilogue of Sherlock Holmes”. Doyle did pen and publish a subsequent collection of stories, The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes, but all the stories in that collection “take place” a decade or more before His Last Bow. The story is unusual in that it is one of only a couple of Holmes stories not written in the first person; most of the Holmes’ stories, and all of the novels are written from the point of view of Dr. Watson, Holmes’ faithful companion, and a few stories are written from Holmes’ own perspective. This story, though, was written in the 3rd person, perhaps because Doyle wanted to present this story of espionage thwarted in such a way that Holmes’ entrance comes as something of a surprise, though the subtitle kind of serves as a spoiler. An Author's Republic audio production.

  • Adventures of the Blue Carbuncle: Sherlock Holmes
    Adventures of the Blue Carbuncle: Sherlock Holmes
    Adventures of the Blue Carbuncle: Sherlock Holmes

    Watson visits his friend Holmes at Christmas time and finds him contemplating a battered old hat, brought to him by the commissionaire Peterson after the hat and a Christmas goose had been dropped by a man in a scuffle with some street ruffians. Peterson takes the goose home to eat, but later returns to Holmes with a blue carbuncle his wife had found in the bird's crop (throat). Holmes makes some interesting deductions concerning the owner of the hat from simple observations of its condition, conclusions amply confirmed when an advertisement for the owner produces the man himself: Henry Baker. Holmes cannot resist such an intriguing mystery, and he and Watson set out across the city to determine exactly how the jewel, stolen from the Countess of Morcar during her stay at a hotel, wound up in a goose's crop. The man who dropped the goose, Mr. Henry Baker, comes to reclaim his hat in response to Holmes' advertisement. Holmes drops hints about how he saved the "innards" of the goose, but Baker fails to respond to them, simply saying that he is afraid goose remains are not much use. He does, however, give Holmes valuable information, eventually leading him to the conclusive stage of his investigation, at Covent Garden. Holmes offers a fresh goose to Henry Baker, who responds with gladness and departs, whereupon Holmes tells Watson that Baker is eliminated from the suspect list as he obviously knows nothing about the carbuncle. At Covent Garden, a salesman named Breckinridge gets angry with Holmes, complaining about all the people who have pestered him about geese sold recently to the landlord of the Alpha Inn. Clearly, someone else knows that the carbuncle was in a goose and is looking for the bird.

    Sherlock Holmes is off on a new mission “Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself; but talent instantly recognizes genius.” - Arthur Conan Doyle, The Valley of Fear Sherlock Holmes and Professor Watson are warned that someone named John Douglas is in grave danger and could be murdered at any time.

  • The Field Bazaar: Sherlock Holmes
    The Field Bazaar: Sherlock Holmes
    The Field Bazaar: Sherlock Holmes

    “The Field Bazaar” was written during an Edinburgh University fundraising event. Doyle had been requested by his university to contribute a short piece of literature for a charity magazine. In the story Watson has received a similar request and whilst he reads the letter at breakfast, Holmes correctly deduces the sender of the letter and Watson's thoughts with regard to the letter. It shares many similarities to the canonical stories. Aside from the metafictional twist in which Watson supplants Doyle as the author publishing his own stories in a magazine, it also plays not only about the famous skill of Holmes' observations producing apparently miraculous results, but also upon the notion of the “traditional breakfast scenes” which open many Holmes short stories.

There came a ticking of some clock or another. And the sound of a dripping faucet somewhere in the house was like a hammer to an anvil. Our breaths were loud, but my heart sounded louder to me. Interestingly enough, Holmes moved as though he'd been through here before. I had no time to ponder this, as somewhere behind us I heard a door shut and then the click of a lock.

Story One: "Bumbling Caper on the Swiss Alps" "Watson! Watson!" I shouted in dismay, thinking I was close to the surface. Alas, I could not find my way out of the snow, packed thick and heavy all around me. My legs were pinned in place, and I could scarcely breathe with each passing moment. Story Two: "Mysterious Murders Surround the Whistling Tavern" He must have had a defective heart, but science has yet to advance to the point where we can make these determinations before the inevitable V-incision is made.More curious than these points, however, was the fact that these bite marks were highly uncharacteristic of any man or beast. Though they showed evidence of the same layout of teeth that is apparent in the human mouth, the proportions and spacing of the teeth were far larger than standard. Story Three: "Watson to the Rescue" The woman nodded, coughing softer this time, and looked up at him. "You don't want to be fiddling around in the pirate business, Mr. Holmes..." she said quietly, raising her eyebrows. My companion inhaled sharply, a deep staccato, then exhaled just as rapidly. "I do not think you understand, Ms. Pensey. This involves the death of an innocent boy, one I've seen around here, and this marking, the one that surely intended his unmerited demise.
