The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Audio book with subtitle
“The Adventure of the Engineer’s Thumb”, one of the 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The story, set in 1889, mainly consists of a young London consultant hydraulic engineer, Mr. Victor Hatherley, recounting strange happenings of the night before, first to Dr. Watson. Hatherley had been visited in his office by a man who identified himself as Colonel Lysander Stark. He offered Hatherley a commission at a country house, to examine a hydraulic press used, as Stark explains, to compress fuller’s earth into bricks. Stark warned Hatherley to keep the job confidential, offering him 50 guineas. Hatherley felt compelled to take this work, despite his misgivings, as his business was newly established and he had very little work.
