SUNDAY, February 17th @ 1:30PM: TEA TIME at Baker Street!

Corwyn Allen continues our journey through The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes this week with THE ADVENTURE OF THE MUSGRAVE RITUAL.

The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual shares elements with two Edgar Allan Poe tales: The Gold Bug and The Cask of Amontillado.

In the story, Holmes recounts to Watson the events arising after a visit from a university acquaintance, Reginald Musgrave. Musgrave visits Holmes after the disappearance of two of his domestic staff, Rachel Howells, a maid, and Richard Brunton, the longtime butler. The pair vanished after Musgrave had dismissed Brunton for secretly reading a family document, the Musgrave Ritual, which dates from the 17th century and is a riddle set in verse form.

Live in Voice.
