The season of gift-giving is here, and this year we've got something special for our members: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Yuletide whodunit "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". In this holiday-themed short story, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson, follow the trail of a lost hat and a Christmas goose through the streets of London and into a rapidly expanding mystery. And, since a great story calls for a great voice, we’ve brought in Emmy Award nominee Alan Cumming (TV's The Good Wife), a past Audie Award winner for Best Male Narrator and one of our very favorite narrators. We enjoyed it, and we hope you will too. Happy listening and happy holidays!Public Domain (P)2012 Audible, Inc.

4.0 The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
Fun story from Conan Doyle, even if it is a soft-pitch in terms of deductive excellence. Pretty good performance by Alan Cumming. I never thought of this as a classic Christmas story, but it is now on the list. Thanks to Audible for releasing this free to members.
