About the Author
Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a Scottish physician and prolific writer most renowned for his ingenious Sherlock Holmes detective stories A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of the Four, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, The Valley of Fear, His Last Bow, and The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes. His collected body of work includes science fiction stories, historical novels, plays, romances, poetry, and nonfiction. Conan Doyle was knighted by King Edward VII in 1902 after writing a widely acclaimed pamphlet defending the British position in the Boer War.
David Timson's experienced treatment of Holmes makes listening to these final exploits a pleasure. His restrained and mannered acting allows the text to shine through, and this is vital as we hear what may be the end of Sherlock Holmes. If you're expecting Basil Rathbone or Jeremy Brett, don't--expect instead Conan Doyle's beloved prose in the aural equivalent of a smooth merlot. These stories capture the spirit of the age, a time when people rested for months after a nasty emotional shock, of which there are plenty here. The CD hardcase and packaging combine to make this a nice addition to your audio library. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
