SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE LibriVox 


The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes 
By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) 


A collection of twelve short stories featuring 
Conan Doyle's legendary detective, originally 
published as single stories in Strand Magazine and 
subsequently collected into a single volume. 


There is not always a crime committed nor a 

culprit to find, and when there is, Holmes does not 

invariably get his man. However, his extraordinary 
powers of deduction generally solve the mystery, often to the discomfiture 
of the official police force. Holmes is a man of many facets, and | do not 
share the common perception of Holmes as cold and humourless: his sense 
of fun can be sparkling, and there are moments of rare pathos. (Summary 
by Ruth Golding) 


Read by Ruth Golding; total running time: 13:29:27. Dedicated Proof-
