From 1939 to 1946 the world gathered around the radio to listen to The New Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes - featuring Basil Rathbone as the highly strung crime-solver and Nigel Bruce as his phlegmatic assistant. Witty, fast-paced, and always surprising, these great radio plays - scripted by the prolific writing team of Anthony Boucher and Denis Green - are as fresh today as they were then. The latest audio technology has been employed to bring the best possible quality and fidelity to these original performances, which feature nostalgic war-time announcements, original narrations and radio commercials. Volume Eighteen presents two classic tales: The Adventure of the Speckled Band One young woman has died a tragic, unexplained death. Is her sister to die the same way? A beautifull young woman asks Holmes and Watson to investigate the unususal happenings at her English country house. Exotic music and strange sounds in the night must be explained in order to prevent a murder! The Purloined Ruby Sherlock Holmes must solve the murder of Sherlock Holmes? Holmes returns to London from his retirement at his Sussex bee farm. A beautiful woman, stolen rubies and a mysterious character from his past lead Holmes into a dangerous and challenging investigation. He must solve the murder of an actor...an actor portraying none other than Sherlock Holmes himself!
