A horse trainer suspects his master has gone crazy, but Holmes discovers the master is hiding a dark secret…in the crypt. David Timson has what it takes to perform the last of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 56 Sherlock Holmes' stories. His British tenor cuts right to the heart of Dr. Watson's voice, our narrative lens; meanwhile, Timson has fun adding color to the cast of bizarre characters. In his own crypt, Conan Doyle can rest assured that his stories are in safe hands.
This is a story from The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, Volume II collection.
In the last six stories written by Conan Doyle featuring Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, the duo face some of their most challenging cases. In "The Adventure of the Illustrious Client", Holmes puts his own life in danger as he tries to cut short a young girl’s infatuation with the notorious wife-murderer Baron Gruner. Why is Mrs. Maberley offered a handsome price for the Three Gables, provided she leaves at once and takes nothing with her? Even in his retirement, Holmes’s skills are called upon, as he follows a trail of death on the Sussex coast in "The Adventure of the Lion’s Mane".
