A Study in Scarlet is a detective mystery novel written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, introducing his new character of Sherlock Holmes, who later became one of the most famous literary detective characters. He wrote the story in 1886, and it was published the next year. The book's title derives from a speech given by Holmes to his sidekick Doctor Watson on the nature of his work, in which he describes the story's murder investigation as his "study in scarlet": "There’s the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it." Although Conan Doyle wrote 56 short stories featuring Holmes, A Study in Scarlet is one of only four full-length novels in the original canon. The novel was followed by The Sign of Four, published in 1890. A Study in Scarlet was the first work of fiction to incorporate the magnifying glass as an investigative tool.

Great Story, reader's voice is delicious

(5 Sterne)

Finally got around to reading some Sherlock Holmes -the story is very entertaining and well written, its a great intro to Holmes & Watson. The reader does a great job, her voice is so soothing I found myself being distracted by the tone of her voice and had to repeat some chapters because I lost track of the story just listening to her read. I will definitely listen to more Sherlock Holmes and more of Miss AshleighJane's reading.

What a great combination this was! The exquisite use of the English language by Arthur Conan Doyle and the exquisite voice of ashleighjane reading the story. Ashleighjane, please read more Sherlock Holmes stories! I hope you will read other great classics - even if others already have. Your readings will be my first choices!

Absolutely superb!

The reader is magnificent! I love the book, and the reader is wonderful and fluid. this is an excellent rendition of A Study in Scarlet.

Cowboy times

(5 Sterne)

Didn't know this was cowboy times going in. "What are you doing, cowboy?" or perhaps "Cowboy, what are you doing?"

Great

(5 Sterne)

AshleighJane has such a lovely voice. The reader puts all other versions of this story to shame.
