The Sign of The Four (version 3)
The Sign of the Four (1890), also called The Sign of Four, is the second novel featuring Sherlock Holmes written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle wrote four novels and 56 stories starring the fictional detective. The story is set in 1888. The Sign of the Four has a complex plot involving service in East India Company, India, the Indian Rebellion of 1857, a stolen treasure, and a secret pact among four convicts ("the Four" of the title) and two corrupt prison guards. It presents the detective's drug habit and humanizes him in a way that had not been done in the preceding novel A Study in Scarlet (1887). It also introduces Doctor Watson's future wife, Mary Morstan. - Summary by Wikipedia (4 hr 27 min)

The best narration
In my opinion this was the best of at least three versions I have tried to listen. Very recommended
Perfect Voice for the greatest Detective
The reader has a great, deep English accent, great pronunciation and pace and well done voices for the supporting characters. The story is excellent, well written and entertaining- I'm definitely a Sherlock Holmes/ Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fan
David Clarke is an absolute wonder. His narrative voice is superb. And his character voices are varied and perfectly suited to the story. Thank you so much for your generosity, David. I'd listen to you read the phone book!
as another has said, not my favorite Holmes book but David Clark knocks it out of the park with his narration.
The Sign of The Four
Listened in one sitting. Don't know why rating would not allow 5 stars. An excellent narrative.
not my favorite
not my favorite Sherlock Holmes book but non the less, an excellent job by David clarke
An excellent reading by David Clarke! I also listened to his readings of 'A Study in Scarlet' and 'The Count of Monte Cristo'. Definitely recommended.
Excellent storu told by a brilliant author and read exceedingly well by this narrator who brings life to each and every character with ease.
