    I purchased the Kindle version of this 4-volume Complete Sherlock Holmes set before this was available. Hopefully, Amazon will Whispersync this pair some day. In the meantime I hope that this TOC outline will help some listeners find particular stories they might be looking for.

    The Audible Part/Chapter Notes refer to the 7-part download. My setting is for downloading in one file, but on very large volumes Audible breaks them up anyway. My notations for (Part # Chapter #) refer to the Audible download "Part" and the "Chapter" within each part.

Included in this collection are all four full-length Holmes novels and more than forty short masterpieces - from the inaugural adventure A Study in Scarlet to timeless favorites like “The Speckled Band” and more. At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.

    "Clearly a first book"

    Overall

    This story was read well, and the character will eventually grow into one of my favorites, but this book clearly shows that it was an initial effort. The story wanders along, with few interesting characters, until a denouement that is quite unsatisfying. There are better N. Marsh stories out there, I would suggest you find them instead of this weak offering.

  • "Three great narrators, nine classic..."

    5 of 5 helpful votes

    Like many story collections, this one is a bit uneven. Some of the stories are quite original and interesting, but others are a bit predictable. All are old-fashioned and charmingly nostalgic. Overall, a great short listen for Christie fans who enjoy her British way of looking at the world.

    Isla Blair, Simon Vance, and Hugh Fraser are always delightful narrators, and this is no exception. I particularly liked Isla Blair, the lovely character actress whose talents are much in evidence with the female voices required in the first stories.

    The stories are: The Edge, The Actress, While the Light Lasts, The House of Dreams, The Lonely God, Manx Gold, Within a Wall, The Mystery of the Spanish Chest, and The Harlequin Tea Set.

    A grand treasure for fans of the grande dame of mystery, The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories brings together nine rare and brilliant Christie tales of murder and detection that span nearly half a century of her storytelling genius. In "The Mystery of the Spanish Chest," Hercule Poirot unravels the psychological conundrums that motivate a killer.... In "The Actress," a great star's shady past becomes the plaything of a blackmailer.... In "The Harlequin Tea Set," Mr. Harley Quin helps a man save his loved ones from the greedy hand of murder.

    First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

These creations by Doyle represent the finest work of his Holmes series, and certainly the most famous.

    Arthur Conan Doyle never wasted time in getting his stories moving. His plots are always direct and refreshingly lucid, and the narrative has a velocity that sweeps you along right to the end. This was no doubt a large part of his immense worldwide success. Not surprisingly, each time he tried to end the series, his fans would howl in protest. But, as he says in the preface to his last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, all good things must come to an end.

    Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, first serialized in a magazine in 1930, is best known through the iconic Humphrey Bogart film of 1941. But it was the book that created the classic "noir" genre with its tough private detective threading his cool way between the criminals and the law. Sam Spade, the private eye solving the mystery of the Maltese statuette, was the template for Philip Marlowe and a host of others…. but they come no more shrewd and cunning with Hammett peppering the text with one-liners.

A girl who had everything ... until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: 'I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting, nothing was ever quite what it seemed.

    The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes are overshadowed by the event with which they close - the meeting of the great detective and Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime. When "The Final Problem" was first published, the struggle between Holmes and his arch nemesis, seemingly to the death, left many readers desolate at the loss of Holmes, but it also led to his immortality as a literary figure.
