He's rude, arrogant, cold, unfriendly, and easily bored. But nobody minds, because Sherlock Holmes is a genius at solving mysteries. Accompany the world's greatest detective through the sinister streets of foggy London, into the most remarkable adventures imaginable.

Full Synopsis
A colonel receives five seeds in the mail—and dies within weeks. A young bride disappears immediately after her wedding. An old hat and a Christmas goose are the only clues to a stolen jewel. A son is accused of his father's murder. These mysteries—and many more—are brought to the house on Baker Street where detective Sherlock Holmes resides. No case is too tricky for the world's most famous sleuth and his incredible powers of deduction.

"Prebble's performance is spot on; he ably and admirably assumes the tales' many voices and dialects." ---Library Journal Audio Review

"Simon Prebble does a fine job with male and female voices differentiated. I could distinguish which character was speaking for the main ones. . . . He made it a pleasure to listen." ---The Book Nympho
