One of the most popular Sherlock Holmes stories, "The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual" is unique because it is one of the few stories that Sherlock narrates himself. This mystery starts when Reginal Musgrave reports to Holmes that two of his staff have vanished into thin air. Walter Covell, with his light British accent, gives an animated performance and a traditional interpretation of this classic. Covell engages listeners with the mystery through suspenseful and varied pacing. Meanwhile, he brings an element of fun to the story, playing with the characters' voices.
Unlike the majority of Holmes stories, the main narrator is Sherlock Holmes not Doctor Watson, with Watson providing only an introduction.
