Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was a British novelist and historian best known as the creator of Sherlock Holmes. He also wrote historical novels, including "The White Company, " which he considered his favorite.
SIMON PREBBLES, a British-born performer of considerable talent and experience, has built a successful career that spans the Atlantic. As a stage and television actor he has played in everything from soaps to Shakespeare, but it is as a veteran narrator of some 275 audio book titles that he has made his mark since coming to the U.S. in 1990. "Audiofile" magazine has named him a 'Golden Voices' and in 2004 he was named "Narrator of the Year" by " Publishers Weekly. He lives with his wife in New York.
THE VALLEY OF FEAR, Arthur Conan Doyle's last Sherlock Holmes novella, finds London's famous consulting detective working to solve the grisly murder of one John Douglas on a country estate in the south of England. The story is a two-parter and, in the second half, moves from Sussex to a mining town in turn-of-the-century America. Thanks to the tale's wide-ranging geography, reader Simon Prebble, a multiple award winner for his audiobook work, is kept busy rendering accents from a number of locales, including London, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and America. He handles the job skillfully, with clear and distinct characterizations, and matches his tone and pacing to the action. This set also includes a short story, "The Final Problem," featuring Holmes's arch-nemesis, Professor Moriarty. M.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
