About this Recording

DOYLE, A.C.: Return of Sherlock Holmes (The), Vol. 2 (Unabridged)

No case is too slight for the mental powers of the great detective: in this second selection from The Return of Sherlock Holmes, a young girl is stalked by a solitary cyclist; whilst the ‘dancing men’ hieroglyphics found in Norfolk lead to a sinister connection with America. Holmes enters the murky world of high society blackmail in ‘Charles Augustus Milverton’; and finds an abducted student from the Priory school. As always, his friend Dr Watson is with him to assist and chronicle these cases.
