Free Download of Sherlock Holmes The Valley of Fear

The Valley of Fear is the fourth and final Sherlock Holmes novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, published in 1915.

In connection to the new Sherlock Holmes movie which brings Moriarty to the forefront as Holmes’s nemesis, Tantor Audio is offering a free download of The Valley of Fear, which includes a bonus Sherlock Holmes story “The Final Problem,” and a companion PDF eBook. The audiobook is narrated by Simon Prebble, who was awarded the title of a “Golden Voice” by AudioFile magazine.

In The Valley of Fear, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson receive a letter from an informant warning that John Douglas of Birlstone House is about to be murdered. Shortly after getting this information Holmes and Watson learn that John Douglas has already been murdered. The two then travel to Birlstone House to help Scotland Yard investigate the murder and find things may not be as they seem, and Holmes is positive that Professor Moriarty is the mastermind behind everything. In typical Holmes fashion he is able to unravel the web of illusions in place and solve the mystery with an ending no one else saw coming.

Apologies: if you downloaded this in the past week, you got the version narrated by John Bolen and missing "The Final Problem." Here's a link to that story. The version narrated by Simon Prebble (and including the bonus story) is the one that downloads now.
