The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle by Arthur Conan Doyle
Read by Alan Cumming, this is a real gem of story. Pun intended!
Cumming brings Holmes and Watson to life along with a slew of other characters. Set during Christmas, this tale chronicles a holiday goose, worn hat and priceless gem that come to Holmes by a most intriguing set of circumstances.
This is a quick listen, but that doesn’t detract from the story’s appeal. If you’re a Holmes, you’ll be pleased. If you’re a Cummings fan, you’ll be thrilled. I haven’t enjoyed a narrated Doyle story this much since René Auberjonois read Mark Frost’s The List of Seven.
