What is the secret of the shocking death of poor Enid's sister? What did she mean by her dying words, "the speckled band? What danger does Enid face from the brutal Dr. Rylott? Only Holmes can scope out the answer and save the helpless girl from certain death. Sir Arthur adapted The Speckled band (1910) from his own short story of that name. A stage success on three continents, the play hasn't received a professional revival for eighty-four years.
When Holmes turned fifty, he retired and became a beekeeper, creating a crisis for his friend Watson, whose income derived from the Holmes stories he contributes to the Strand magazine. Further, the doctor owes money to mobsters who want either their cash or his blood. The surprising upshot is, as the headlines proclaim, a Ghastly double murder in famed detective's flat, a one-act comedy by producer-director Yuri Rasovsky, here receiving its audiobook premiere.
