From the first exuberant sentence, Walter Covell's performance of this Sherlock Holmes mystery is perfect. His jolly, cracking voice is laced with amusement; his English accent put to delightful use. "The Adventure of the Empty House" is an all-time favorite excerpted from the larger collection entitled The Return of Sherlock Holmes. But hearing this story out loud compounds its charm - the wittiness of Conan Doyle's language is underlined by Covell's narration; the plot's adventure heightened by the sheer enthusiasm of Covell's voice.
