In London, Sherlock Holmes is suffering once more form the dreadful ennui which plagues him, when a beautiful young woman comes to him with a mystery which is to stretch even his remarkable deductive skills. Once a year, Mary Morstan receives an anonymous package containing a magnificent costly pearl. Aware that the gifts are somehow connected to the disappearance of her father ten years previously, she is both intrigued and frightened by the arrival of a letter summoning her for a meeting in the dead of night. Accompanied by Holmes and Watson, Mary embarks on a quest which is to lead them through the dark heart of the city, to a one-legged man and an incredible tale of greed and revenge.

Great - Another Great Performance & Story

This is another great Sherlock Holmes with the fab Clive at the helm as the great detective. He & Michael are very good together & bring out something in this story that others could not for me. Clive is my fave Radio Holmes & I have them all. Love it !

Disappointing

I have bought quite a few in this series and this has been the first disappointment. The actors were as good as usual..but perhaps this is just not one of Conan Doyle's best stories.
