Audible Editor Reviews

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of Baskervilles is one of the most classic Sherlock Holmes stories. Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead from a heart attack; local legend suggests that he was scared to death by a diabolical, supernatural hound. In fact, in typical Holmesian fashion, the truth is far more complex. Patrick Tull's performance is a joy. He relishes playing a great many characters, from the aristocratic Sir Henry Baskerville to the servile John Barrymore as well as - of course - the deductive Holmes and the eager Watson. Real Sherlock fans certainly can't miss this quintessential episode.

Publisher's Summary

An ancient family curse has caused the shocking death of all of Sir Henry Baskerville's ancestors, and the distinguished Dr. James Mortimer wants Sherlock Holmes to help protect his friend. According to local legend, an enormous, savage, supernatural hound lives on the Grimpen Moor, and has just killed yet another Baskerville. Despite Holmes's well-deserved reputation as a crime specialist and brilliant sleuth, even he wonders whether his powers of deductive reasoning can defeat this mysterious, hellish beast.

What the Critics Say

"Patrick Tull's voice is everything you could ask for in a narrator - clear, adaptable, and with enough projection that it carries well inside a moving vehicle." (Express-Times)

    "An excelent guide to the Moors!"

    I'd first visited 221B Baker Street around '93 and then became a regular visitor. First in print - then through the auspices Of Granada films - then "A Baker Street Dozen" and the three volumes of "The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes" on Audible. I have listened to them frequently but, on occasion, I've had an interest in, say, visiting Baskerville Hall. So I bought this stand-alone rendition of this and Sir Arthur's other major Holmes episodes rather than fishing through the near eighty hours of those compilations. This rendition stands shoulder to shoulder with that in "the Complete Stories..."!
