SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE was born in Edinburgh in 1859. Hoping to augment his income as an eye specialist, he wrote his first story feature the detective Sherlock Holmes. Fifty-nine more adventures followed. Once, wearying of Holmes, his creator killed him off, but was forced by popular demand to resurrect him. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died in Sussex in 1930.From AudioFile:
Reminiscent of Old-Time Radio, these classics are performed by a practiced cast. Ominous musical crescendos foreshadow danger and provide interludes between passages. The peal of bells, the drum of hoof beats, and the howl of devilish hounds add to the charm of these old-fashioned tales of horror and suspense. Although the cast is not listed, it's evident that they were chosen for their authentic accents, and they're matched perfectly to their characters. These stories are worth revisiting, and the listener is reminded of a simpler time when a good story could stand on its own without involving explicit gore and violence to be compelling.
