Mystery & Suspense • 18.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Phil Rickman profiles Ben Foley, who lives on the Welsh border. Foley is trying to prove that Arthur Conan Doyle got his inspiration for THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES there, rather than on the moors of England. His belief draws all sorts of theorists and eccentrics; mysticism, superstition, and folklore also abound. Narrator Emma Powell masterfully distinguishes each character, her best being Merrily Watkins, exorcist for the Diocese of Hereford, and her endearing young daughter, Jane. The tale is full of fascinating storytellers who touch on spiritualists, child killers, and Sherlockiana, all expertly retold by Powell. This atmospheric gem is perfect for mystery and horror buffs, as well as those who enjoy superior writing and narration. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 08]
