Emmy award-winning actor Sir Derek Jacobi reads all twelve stories from this last collection to feature Holmes and Watson.
The Illustrious Client features an Austrian adventurer who corrupts young women, while in The Blanched Soldier, Holmes works without Watson to help an ex-serviceman. One of the worlds largest diamonds is stolen in The Mazarin Stone and The Three Gables sees Holmes face a formidable female criminal.
In The Sussex Vampire, Holmes investigates the case of a baby with two small wounds on his neck, and three men with the rare surname of Garrideb feature in The Three Garridebs. In The Problem of Thor Bridge, Holmes finds an interesting use for Watsons revolver, and a noted professor suddenly begins acting very strangely in The Creeping Man.
In The Lions Mane, Holmes has retired to tend bees. Or has he? And why has Mrs. Merrilow never shown her face in The Veiled Lodger? In Shoscombe Old Place, the connection between a dog and its bone has never been more important while, in The Retired Colourman, Holmes tackles one of his most controversial cases.
Complete and unabridged. Read by Derek Jacobi.
