A previous collection of Doyle's stories, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, brought so much pleasure that I couldn't wait for more. Here they are in THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES stunningly presented by Simon Prebble.. If you've not yet heard a reading by Prebble, sit down and prepare to be well entertained.
The British born Prebble, an experienced stage, television, and film, actor came to our country in 1990. Since then he has narrated some 350 audio books and has garnered every possible award (some numerous times) - A Golden Voice and Voices of the Century by AudioFile, 24 Earphone awards, 5 Listen Up awards...well, you get the idea, he's terrific.
This collection of 13 Holmes stories was initially published during the years 1903 - 1904. It is the first collection to appear since Holmes supposedly died in "The Adventure of the Final Problem," and represents Doyle at his best. Among the 13 we find everything from The Adventure of the Empty House (which features the return of Holmes and his explanation of miraculously surviving a to the death struggle with Professor Moriarity) to The Adventure of the Second Stain.
The redoubtable Watson is, of course, by Holmes's side throughout offering his memorable comments and questions.
THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is truly a classic and one that detective fiction aficionados will want to hear again and again.
