Wealthy art collector Lord Hector Darlington's priceless painting, "The Adoration", has disappeared. The facts Darlington relates at 221-B surrounding the theft are the classic 'closed room' conundrum within his private viewing chamber. When Holmes and Watson arrive at Darlington's luxurious residence to gather facts and evidence for this new case, his lordship happily annonces that the painting has somehow suddenly reappeared in his spot behind its velvet curtain.

The matter seems solved, but evidence Holmes finds when he examines the painting points to something insidious and criminal. Connecting this with the names upon calling cards Holmes has noted while waiting for their client to meet them upon their arrival, Holmes investigates later that day in disguise. The case takes a very dark turn involving organized crime figures from America, a rejected son, Lady Darlington, mounting gambling debts, stolen paintings, forgeries, and, at last, a tragic murder. Author David Stuart Davies unravels the story with uncanny skill equal to Doyle's, and all the characters portrayed by David Ian Davies in this recording are pitch perfect.

" refer to David's Sherlock Holmes productions as simply dramatic readings is a major understatement, as he brings a wonderful range of distinctly unique voices into play as he essays each of the characters, creating a marvelously layered and rich listening experience that showcases Arthur Conan Doyle's masterful use of language." - Charles Prepolec,

"...David Ian Davies's reading of The Tangled Skein is a full-blooded theatrical performance that does justice to his near-namesake's gripping narrative. - Roger Johnson, Editor District Messenger Newspaper, The Sherlock Holmes Society of London

"...To call this only a reading of the classic Sherlock Holmes story, would be to devalue the beauty of this performance. Although you may have heard recordings of the Sherlock Holmes work read before with distance and haughty affectation, none of that is present in Mr. Davies storytelling performance. This features one man, many voices and a hefty portion of talent. This performance is fresh, approachable and inviting. - Sam Buvala,, Reviews

"Mr. Davies's reading of The Hound of the Baskervilles adds mastery to a masterpiece! Mr. Davies is an absolute virtuoso of voices and dialects. It is difficult to believe that this unabridged narration of Sir Arthur's most famous Holmes case is done only by one man and not being performed by a troupe of actors and actresses. Limited space doesn't allow us to do full justice to describe this recording, but suffice it to say that Mr. Davies's performance has received "raves" from independent reviewers. Even when you hear it, you won't believe it! -
