It's obvious after he's explained it.

More great stories from Conan Doyle. This volume contains a series of twelve short stories which are excellently read by Derek Jacobi. It contains the second collection of stories (collated over period 1892-1893), after 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1891-1892 collection). I stupidly read the third collection ('The Return Of...') before 'The Memoirs..'. At least now I know where he is returning from! Where he goes is covered in the last short story of this book - 'The Adventure of the Final Problem'. Holmes came back due to popular pressure on the author. Highly recommended book.

Jacobi brings Holmes to life

Would you consider the audio edition of The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes to be better than the print version?

Derek Jacobi is a legend and his uncanny ability to bring to life each and every character is wonderful. His voice is opulent in tone and his acting prowess ensures that his narration is world class. I have listened over and over again. I love it.
