Three Tales of Avarice

Arthur Conan Doyle, Author, Edward Hardwicke, Narrated by , read by Edward Hardwicke. BBC Audio $9.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-60283-715-7

Edward Hardwicke once again delivers a pitch-perfect performance in these three classic mysteries grouped together by the greed at the heart of each crime—“The Adventure of the Priory School,” “The Red Headed League,” and “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.” Doyle's great detective is back—with Watson at his side—as he utilizes his famous powers of deduction to search the English countryside for missing children, to investigate a bizarre cult of red headed men, and to discover how a stolen jewel found its way into a wayward goose. Hardwicke shines in his portrayal of Watson and Homes and produces an impressive range of voices to round out the cast that populates these classic tales; “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle” and “The Red Headed League” are outstanding renderings, and this collection is certain to delight Holmes enthusiasts.
