Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s "The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter" marks the first appearance of Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock’s similarly wise and discerning older brother who, lacking any other recourse, enlists the help of his sharp-witted younger sibling after he becomes aware of a sordid situation involving kidnapping and extortion his friend Mr. Melas becomes embroiled in.
The talented David Timson guides the listener through Doyle’s layered mystery with an effortless grace, gliding between Melas’ thick Greek accent and Holmes’ dignified British timbre with equal finesse.
This is a story from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes IV collection.
Four more stories from the master detective. The mystery of the missing suitor is solved and Sherlock Holmes raises his whip: an Indian pot stands in the shadows of a Colonel's death; serious affairs of state and international diplomacy are threatened by a theft; and surely evil intent lies behind threats in a hidden house. The cool observations and swift action of Mr. Sherlock Holmes resolves all.
