Three Tales of Intrigue

Arthur Conan Doyle, Author, Edward Hardwicke, Narrated by , read by Edward Hardwicke. BBC Audio $9.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-60283-659-4

These three classic mysteries, masterfully narrated by inimitable Edward Hardwicke—Holmes fans will remember him for his portrayal of Dr. Watson to Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes in the Granada television series—capture the spirit of Doyle's celebrated detective and pit Holmes and Watson against the criminal forces of Victorian England. In these stories—“The Crooked Man,” “The Greek Interpreter,” and “The Naval Treaty”—Holmes and Watson hunt down murderers, locate missing documents, assist a bewildered interpreter, and unravel a decades-old mystery that began with betrayal and romantic rivalry in India. Hardwicke is outstanding; he also brings to life a host of minor characters, both male and female, that includes Holmes's inscrutable brother, Mycroft. A true treat for mysteries lovers. (Sept.)
