The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes was a British TV series from the early 70s that dramatized stories written contemporaneously with the Sherlock Holmes stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This anthology contains twelve of the thirteen stories adapted as episodes for the first season. Sadly, one story, "The Missing Witness Sensation" by Ernest Bramah, is not public domain in the U.S., but can be read in the anthology Max Carrados Mysteries. (Summary by Nullifidian) (11 hr 3 min)

some good mystery writers short stories

(4 Sterne)

I enjoyed these short mysteries all were well narrated. Stories are good but to short I felt. I really enjoyed some more than others but a nice change of pace and a good collection thanks to all the narrators & LibriVox for these fine tales.

So so - Ho hum

This compilation is only sort of okay. Some of the readings are okay, some not so much, and some of the stories are okay, and some not so much. I guess if you are in need of short stories this will fit the bill.

TV version was much better and I always prefer book over TV but these just were not that exciting to me. No problems with readers thanks for readings and I agree with other judgement if you just want short stories its ok

Pretty good

A joy for lovers of Holmes.
