Summary:

Blackstone is pleased to present the first ever audio recordings of the only two Holmes plays written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This specially commissioned production by the Hollywood Theater of the Ear is a unique, must-have audio for all Sherlockians.

In Sherlock Holmes, Professor Moriarity, the Napoleon of crime, plots with would-be blackmailers to have Holmes killed. And the normally love-proof Holmes falls for an exceptional woman.

What is the secret of the shocking death of poor Enid’s sister, whose dying words were, “the speckled band”? Only Holmes can find the answer and save a helpless girl from certain death in The Speckled Band.

When Holmes retired, it created a financial crisis for his friend Watson, who owes money to mobsters who want either their cash or his blood. The surprising upshot is: Ghastly Double Murder in Famed Detective’s Flat, a one-act comedy by producer-director Yuri Rasovsky, here receiving its audiobook premiere.

Genres:

  • Geoff Miles

    The first two stories were in the true nature of Conan Doyle's intended style. However, the final section displays a lack of regard to anything he would have actually countenanced. Therefore, dear reader, pass it by at no loss to your overall enjoyment.

  • MissKate

    The 2 radio plays that were written by William Gillette and/or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are very good. The last one, which seemed more modern, is a waste of time, so don't bother to listen to it.

  • Steve Y

    While as a whole, this was a great recording, it was a shame that the comedy piece was included with legitimate Conan Doyle works. The final work, while some may have thought humorus, was a complete insult to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and especially the beloved characters of Holmes, Watson, and Mrs. Hudson. The genuine characters and personalities etched by the real author would never have been maligned in such a way. And while other worthy writers have created additional Holmes stories, none I have read so far lowered themselves to the level of this murder at Baker Street story making Holmes look both corrupt and immoral.
