This standalone audiobook app combines a professional audio recording with supplemental features for download-once, grab-and-go anywhere enjoyment. The story is brought to life with all its characters performed by master Holmes performer, David Ian Davies.
There were 56 original stories written by Conan Doyle and published in The Strand magazine between 1891 and 1929. The stories are divided among five series. This is from the fourth series, “Sherlock Holmes: His Last Bow”.
This is a lengthy two-part story consisting of “The Singular Experience of Mr. John Scott Eccles” and “The Tiger of San Pedro”, which on original publication in The Strand bore the collective title of “A Reminiscence of Mr. Sherlock Holmes”. The story begins with a strange telegram explaining that the unknown writer has just experienced something grotesque and wishes to consult Sherlock Holmes. Holmes is bored and between cases, and as his mind does not cope particularly well with boredom, he takes on the case, simply at the mention of the suggestive wording of grotesque. His expectations for a challenging case are happily met: Mr. Scott Eccles recalls his bizarre stay at the house of a new “friend” the night before and a mystery is formed for Holmes to solve.
