From the Artic to Egypt to Australia, Doyle tells thrilling tales of crime, suspense, mysterious secrets, and humor. Included are:
This was the 3rd collection of short stories I purchased through Audible and by far the best. The other two were very difficult to listen to due to poor audio quality and substandard readers. The sound quality and reader in this one are nothing to write home about but they don't spoil the fine stories.

This book contains 10 short stories; many based on sea voyages dealing with strange things; phantoms only half glimpsed; ghosts and other supernatural phenomena discussed by their effect on others. Much of it is in the form of diaries. I had hoped for more.

Not Sherlock Holmes but a good example of Victorian-era ghostie stories. If you like HR Haggard, this might be interesting too. Good audio quality but narrator's attempt at accents are not that successful.

This is very period stuff, typical of the romantic style popular. It's not at all like Sherlock Holmes. Rather disappointing.
