About the author

Arthur Conan Doyle was born in 1859. He trained to be a doctor at Edinburgh University and eventually set up a medical practice in Southsea. During the quiet periods between patients, he turned his hand to writing, producing historical novels such as Micah Clarke and adventure yarns including The Lost World, as well as four novels and fifty-six stories involving his most celebrated creations, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. Doyle was knighted in 1902. In later life he devoted much of his time to his belief in Spiritualism, using his writing and celebrity as a means of providing funds to support activities in this field. He died in 1930.

    I have loved the stories and books about Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick,
    Dr. Watson, since I was in junior high school. It continues to this day! Sir A. Conan Doyle could sure pen “Who did it...and why?” mysteries. I still love them!

    The narration was dramatic and well performed. I will likely listen to it many times over.
  • (2/5)
    I can hardly believe this is a real Sherlock Holmes story. SH stories can be far-fetched, with characters and situations that, to say the least, lack credulity. But they’re interesting and even sympathetic. In this story, even Holmes himself is flat. There are lots and lots of good Holmes stories read well, notably the Stephen Fry collection published recently. Don’t bother with this one.
