Let’s get right to the heart of this thing: Tantor Audio is, for a limited time, offering a FREE download of the audio version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes — which includes “Silver Blaze,” “The Greek Interpreter,” “The Resident Patient,” and a whole lot more – narrated by none other than the great Simon Prebble!
