In the more than 100 years since Doyle created the immortal Sherlock Holmes and his assistant, Dr. Watson, no other mystery writer has come close to eclipsing him as the standard-bearer in crime fiction. A brilliant London-based consulting detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess and is renowned for his skillful use of astute observation, deductive reasoning, and inference to solve difficult cases. Holmes is at the height of his powers here in this collection of twelve of his most famous cases, including “The Red-Headed League” and “The Adventure of the Speckled Band.”
This 2009 reading of Conan Doyle classics collected in one app features stage, screen and audio actor Ralph Cosham as your narrator. Several of his narrations have been named "Best Audio of the Year" by Publishers Weekly, and he has been a three-time nominee for the coveted Audie® Award.
