Audible Editor Reviews

With A Study in Scarlet, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle debuts his most beloved characters, the indomitable Sherlock Holmes and his apprentice-turned-chronicler, Dr. John Watson. The forebear of the modern detective story finds the famous sleuth in the employ of Scotland Yard, investigating the murder of rambling drunk Enoch Drebber. With his eloquent Victorian drawl, performer Peter Mesney portrays the "consulting detective" in all his idiosyncratic glory - Holmes' blunt mannerisms, peculiar interests, and staggering attention to detail all stand in contrast to the bemused astonishment with which Watson greets his new friend. Mesney's knack for character acting is evident as his voice carries listeners from the working class parlance of a London police unit to the rugged frontiers of America’s Wild West.

Publisher's Summary

Join Sherlock Holmes - and his faithful companion and chronicler, Dr. Watson - on their first case. The adventure begins when Holmes and Watson are asked by Scotland Yard to step around to a house off Brixton Road. In the vacant house, the police have discovered a body: one Enoch J. Drebber of Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A. There are quantities of blood all over the room, and on one wall, the single word, Rache is scrawled in blood red letters. Inspector Lestrade wants Holmes's opinion: "If this man was murdered," he asks, "how was it done?" "Poison," Holmes said curtly. "Come, Watson. The game is afoot."
