At the outset of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Sign of Four, the ever-faithful Dr. Watson debates confronting his boss - the brilliant Sherlock Holmes - about his drug problem. The Sign of Four is the second installment in the Holmes series and greatly expands upon the emotional and spiritual sides of the great detective. Performed by British master, Patrick Tull, whose deep voice and impeccable dialect carry the listener, The Sign of Four features a secret pact made between corrupt prison guards and four convicts, and a mysterious string of pearls received by a client of Holmes. While not necessarily a success upon initial publication, The Sign of Four has been dramatically adapted at least 12 times.
Greed, betrayal, and vengeance set the stage for this Sir Arthur Conan Doyle classic. Sherlock Holmes is rescued from boredom by the strange case of Jonathan Small and the tragedy of Pondicherry Lodge. The mystery leads Holmes and Dr. Watson into an intricate plot regarding a lost treasure belonging to four convicts on the Andaman Islands.

I have read this book before but now i enjoy listening to audiobooks because my eyes are letting me down.
The narrator was not the best i am sorry to say. He was reading a little too fast and sometimes i had to repeat what i heard before to get it all.
I can't complain - this was a free book. But compared to the involved fiction of today, this was a "simple" read. Still it was fun and passed the time, But if it weren't free, I wouldn't really recommend using a credit for it. Rather, get it for free off Amazon.com and just read it on the Kindle.
"I feared the days of the great audible ..."
... book readings were over. P'shaw my dear fellow Patrick Tull has proved me wrong.
