Адаптированная книга на английском языке «Sherlock Holmes and the Sport of Kings by Arthur Conan Doyle». Аудиокнига на английском.
When Silver Blaze, a famous racehorse, disappears, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go down to his Dartmoor stables. Silver Blaze is the favourite for a big race in a week’s time, and his owner, Mr. Ross, is hoping to win this race. But first, he needs to find his horse. There is also a dead man in the case — John Straker, Silver Blaze’s trainer. His wife found his body in the mud not far from the stables. And Inspector Gregory needs to find the killer. But he and Mr. Ross are getting the wrong answers to their questions.
So, says Sherlock Holmes, what did happen at the stables on Monday night? And, just as important, what did not happen?
A horse called Silver Blaze
‘I must go down there, Watson. I must,’ said Sherlock Holmes at the breakfast table on Thursday morning. ‘Go? Go where?’ I asked.
‘To Dartmoor — to King’s Pyland.’
‘Ah! So that’s it,’ I said. ‘Well, everybody in the country is talking about the case at King’s Pyland.’
I always know when Holmes is interested in a case. He reads all the newspapers, he walks up and down, up and down the room, and does not speak for hours.
