Overview

When Sherlock Holmes met his demise in “The Adventure of the Final Problem,” published in 1893, the distress of the unsuspecting reading public was profound. For years fans showed no signs of letting Sherlock Holmes lie down and die. Eventually, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle saw fit to continue his Holmes’ canon and wrote a series of thirteen short stories, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, published in 1905. The series begins, inevitably, with the shock reappearance of the master detective in “The Adventure of the Empty House.” This plus three others are included in this first volume of Doyle’s continuation of the famous bloodhound-of-a-genius, read by master storyteller David Timson. Though he has been away, it seems that Holmes has lost none of his remarkable qualities.

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.


David Timson is an actor, voice actor, and playwright. He is best known for his narration of The Complete Sherlock Holmes audiobook, in which he voices all 125 characters in the Holmes novels and short stories. His narrations have earned eight AudioFile Earphones Award.
