From Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, this classic episode was published in 1892.

Walter Zimmerman and Walter Covell's performances are right on target for this adventure tale. They smoothly navigate a variety of characters, from upper-crust British elite to the gruff downtrodden. Together, they bring joy to this quirky story. Besides, with their flawless diction and pacing, following this mystery is elementary!
Holmes cannot resist a good mystery, and he and Watson set out across the city to determine exactly how the stolen jewel wound up in a goose's crop. In doing so, they unravel an intricate criminal plot and set free a man falsely accused of a crime.
"The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" is one of the 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It is the seventh of 12 stories in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, which was first published in Strand Magazine in January 1892.

This is a great story. Short and interesting. I'll be looking for more Doyle books, especially narrated in this fashion.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
No one could stand to listen to the actor who played Sherlock Holmes. I have bought and listened to anthologies of Sherlock and love the stories and writing, but I could hardly bear listening to the actor who played Sherlock. The person who played Watson did a fine job though.<br/>
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The performers need to put more of the character into the reading. Watson was the only one in character.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
NO, BY THE PERFORMANCE.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
