The Adventure of Silver Blaze: A Sherlock Holme...

The Adventure of Silver Blaze, one of the 56 Sherlock Holmes short stories written by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is one of 12 in the cycle collected as ´´The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes´´. Doyle ranked ´´Silver Blaze´´ 13th in a list of his 19 favourite Sherlock Holmes stories. One of the most popular Sherlock Holmes short stories, ´´Silver Blaze´´ focuses on the disappearance of the eponymous race horse (a famous winner) on the eve of an important race and on the apparent murder of its trainer. The tale is distinguished by its atmospheric Dartmoor setting and late-Victorian sporting milieu. It also features some of Conan Doyle´s most effective plotting, hinging on the ´´curious incident of the dog in the night-time.´´ Sherlock Holmes and his partner Dr. Watson travel by train to Dartmoor to investigate a crime of disappearance of the great race horse Silver Blaze and the murder of the horse´s trainer, John Straker. Holmes and Watson arrive at King´s Pyland, from which Silver Blaze is missing. Fitzroy Simpson has come to Dartmoor (and specifically to King´s Pyland) to gather information relating to his professional activities, and has become a suspect in the murder. However, to Holmes, from the outset, there seem to be a number of facts that do not fit the inspector´s case against Simpson, damning as it looks. It seems odd, for instance, that he would lead the horse out on to the moor simply to injure or kill him. That could be done right in his stall. He could not have stolen the animal. What good would such a famous thoroughbred be to him? Why has an exhaustive search of the neighbourhood not turned up Silver Blaze? What has Simpson done with him? 1. Language: English.

If you stumbled on a witch, are you sure you could spot her? What if she came in the form of a sweet old lady sporting sweats? So begins the witchy, wondrous debut novel certain to warm your soul and give it shivers at the same heart-thumping time. With a smouldering cauldron of quirky witches, wayward ghosts, sarcastic pets - and an awkward male sidekick - this tale of two covens offers delightful new ways to separate the good witch from the bad. When Amy and her one-eared, one-eyed cat Scruff escape her abusive great aunt, their getaway car is sent hurtling through a tunnel by a wave of water, and her simple plan goes awry in ways Amy could never have conjured. What follows is a series of curious circumstances, particularly the strange ways of the elderly Milly and her sweatsuit-clad friends. Together, they form the OLDGALS - Old Ladies Doing Good And Loving Sweats. When a trio of evil witches confront them, a fierce battle begins. Can Amy triumph over evil - and perhaps even find superhuman romance? For Amy and friends, it´s an action-packed, magical ride that´s as bumpy a ride as witch´s broom, and always brimming over with spine-tingling surprises. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Abby Elvidge.
