The Valley of Fear read by Derek Jacobi
The Valley of Fear, the last of the four Sherlock Holmes novels, ranks among Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s best work. The mystery begins with a coded warning of imminent danger, drawing the illustrious Sherlock Holmes and the faithful Dr. Watson to a secluded country home. A trail of bewildering clues—raincoats, dumbbells, a missing wedding ring—leads to sleuthing in the finest Holmesian tradition, with a gripping backstory of a cult that terrorized a valley in the American West. A crackingly suspenseful narrative makes this a must for all lovers of mystery and detection.
