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

Here are the last six Sherlock Holmes stories from The Casebook: The Illustrious Client, The Three Gables, The Lion’s Mane, The Blanched Soldier, The Retired Colourman, The Veiled Lodger and Shoscombe Old Place written by Doyle at the end of his life. As with all the Holmes recordings by David Timson for Naxos AudioBooks, this set is propelled by well-chosen music and the remarkable variety of characters from the bottomless imagination of the reader. A tour de force which is unlikely to be matched for decades. As a bonus, the set contains a Sherlock Holmes story written by David Timson himself!

  • The last six stories bringing to an end a remarkable series which has taken nearly a decade to complete
  • The inspiration of both writer and reader remains strong right to the end
  • The end of a hugely collectable series
  • Considerable press attention is expected
  • 4 CD set
  • Approximate running time: 5.5 hours
