Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Scarlet (Arthur Conan Doyle) (CD)
A complete and unabridged reading by Derek Jacobi of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective novel.
"There’s the scarlet thread of murder running through the colorless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it."
Arriving in the wilderness of London and in need of lodgings, Dr. John Watson finds himself living at 221B Baker Street with one Sherlock Holmes. When a corpse is discovered in a derelict house Watston, fascinated by his brilliant, eccentric companion, is soon drawn into Holmes’ investigations.
There’s no sign of a struggle, no wounds on the body, yet scrawled in blood across the walls is the word "RACHE"—revenge. Watson is baffled but, for Holmes, the game is afoot. . .
