Editor reviews

Best known for his mysteries, particularly those featuring the crime-solving ability of his iconic detective, Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in other genres as well. "The Sealed Room" is a horror tale in the style of some of the American writer Edgar Allen Poe’s work. Excerpted here from the Four Short Stories collection, it is given a bravura performance by British film and television veteran Carl Rigg, who employs his gravelly baritone in unfolding this discomforting tale of a banker's clerk placed in untenable financial and personal straits by his disgraced father and the man’s fanatically loyal servant.

Summary

This is a story from the Four Short Stories collection.
In these stories, Conan Doyle draws the listener in to experience drama, suspense and, ultimately, the shock of surprise. Here is a unique combination of a famous analytical intellect telling spine-tingling tales against a background of turn-of-the-century England. Nothing is quite as it seems. What is the secret of "Lot No. 249"? What lies in wait for an aviator in the stratosphere? And what lies inside "The Sealed Room"?

Very odd

Certainly is an odd creepy little story which I am not certain how I feel about it. Maybe I need to listen again. I just feel nonplussed.
It is well written and read but I do not feel satisfied with the ending.
Great expectations without anything great.
