Murder by Moonlight and Other Mysteries

New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Volumes 19-24

About The Book

From 1939-1946 Americans gathered around their radio to listen to The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes -- featuring Basil Rathbone as the high-strung crime solver and Nigel Bruce as his phlegmatic assistant, Dr. Watson.

Witty, fast-paced and always surprising, these great radio plays, written by the prolific writing team of Anthony Boucher and Denis Green, are as fresh today as they were then.

The latest audio technology was employed to bring the best audio quality and fidelity to the original performances, which feature nostalgic wartime announcements, original commercials and radio narrations.

This special CD edition includes:

  • The Book of Tobit and Murder Beyond the Mountains


  • The Manor House Case and The Adventure of the Stuttering Ghost


  • The Great Gandolfo and The Adventure of the Original Hamlet


  • Murder by Moonlight and The Singular Affair of the Coptic Compass


  • The Gunpowder Plot and The Babbling Butler


  • The Accidental Murderess and The Adventure of the Blarney Stone
