Two-time Emmy Award nominee (The Good Wife) and Audie Award winner for best narrator Alan Cumming here narrates Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's first-rate festive whodunit. Cumming adds his personal flair to the mystery classic and turns in an outstanding performance of the great detective Sherlock Holmes and his pal, Watson.
Holmes cannot resist a good mystery, so when Commissionaire Peterson came to him and Watson, with a story about a goose with a precious carbuncle that his wife had found in the bird crop, Holmes couldn't resist - even if it was during the festive period. They set out across London to determine exactly how the stolen jewel wound up in a goose's crop. In doing so, they unravel an intricate criminal plot and set free a man falsely accused of a crime.
'The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle' is one of the 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It is the seventh of 12 stories in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, which was first published in Strand Magazine in January 1892.
