This volume presents some of Arthur Conan Doyle’s unduly neglected masterworks of suspense. Each begins in a quietly factual way, which makes all the more dramatic the crescendo of fear and puzzlement that ensues as each startling new circumstance is revealed. Even without his supremely logical brainchild Sherlock Holmes, Conan Doyle shows that his tales are unbeatable for thrills and excitement. This is a great opportunity for the listener to discover a new facet of the master’s ability to mystify and enthrall. Included in this collection are six tales of terror: “The Horror of the Heights” “The Leather Funnel” “The New Catacomb” “The Case of Lady Sannox” “The Terror of Blue John Gap” “The Brazilian Cat” And seven tales of mystery: “The Lost Special” “The Beetle-Hunter” “The Man with the Watches” “The Japanned Box” “The Black Doctor” “The Jew’s Breastplate” “The Nightmare Room”

Author Bio: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

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.
