About this product
- DescriptionAs a dense yellow fog swirls through the streets of London, a deep melancholy has descended on Sherlock Holmes, who sits in a cocaine-induced haze at 221B Baker Street. His mood is only lifted by a visit from a beautiful but distressed young woman-Mary Morstan, whose father vanished ten years before. Four years later she began to receive an exquisite gift every year: a large, lustrous pearl. Now she has had an intriguing invitation to meet her unkwn benefactor and urges Holmes and Watson to accompany her. In the ensuing investigation-which involves a wronged woman, a stolen hoard of Indian treasure, a wooden-legged ruffian, a helpful dog, and a love affair-even the jaded Holmes is moved to exclaim, Isn't it gorgeous! This audiobook includes the bonus Sherlock Holmes story The Red-Headed League.
