Publisher's Summary

In A Study in Scarlet, Holmes and Watson's first mystery, the pair are summoned to a south London house where they find a dead man whose contorted face is a twisted mask of horror. The body is unmarked by violence but on the wall a mysterious word has been written in blood.

The police are baffled by the crime and its circumstances. But when Sherlock Holmes applies his brilliantly logical mind to the problem he uncovers a tragic tale of love and deadly revenge...

Highly enjoyable

I've loved the Sherlock Holmes BBC series with Benedict Cumberbatch from the very first episode, and I must say the original novels are just as riveting. Highly recommended, and you can't go wrong at this price point. The Voice actor was excellent as well.

Difficult to follow.

Narration is slow with long pauses between sentences. Voice is anxious sounding and monotonous.
I'll try a different version.
