I am afraid, Watson, that I shall have to go," said Holmes, as we sat down together to our breakfast one morning. Bless you, sir, if any one is about he will be, for he is always the first stirring.

His baptism re Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born the third of ten siblings on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father, Charles Altamont Doyle, was born in England of Irish descent, and his mother, born Mary Foley, was Irish. They were married in 1855. Although he is now referred to as "Conan Doyle", the origin of this compound surname (if that is how he meant it to be understood) is uncertain. His baptism record in the registry of St Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh gives 'Arthur Ignatius Conan' as his Christian name, and simply 'Doyle' as his surname

Silver Blaze I am afraid, Watson that I shall have to go, said Holmes as we sat down together to our breakfast one morning. Go! Where to ? ‘to Dartmoor. I think that you have looked into this matter of the murder of John Straker and the disappearance of Silver Blaze ? I have seen what the Telegraph and the Chronicle have to say. It is one of those cases where the art of the analyses should be used rather than finding fresh evidences.

Conan Doyle’s famous detective certainly doesn’t need any introduction. Sherlock Holmes, the brilliant and famous sleuth who can unscrew the most intricate layered coils of naturally simple crimes, and explain the complexities of impossible mysteries. The writer ranked this short story number 13 out of his 19 most appreciated. Silver Blaze belongs in series of 56 Sherlock Holmes short works. It is also one out of 12 in the collection called The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.

The disappearance of a famous racehorse and the murder of his trainer lead to an investigation by Sherlock Holmes.

I confess - this is the first Sherlock Holmes I remember reading. It's a short story, it took me less than two hours to read, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It contains the memorable line - the curious incident of the dog in the night-time - and a curious incident it is. The story concerns a thoroughbred racehorse stolen from his stables a night or so before a big race and the murder of his owner that same night. Naturally the police have tried but failed to solve the crime, and Holmes is called upon. The style is very similar to Agatha Christie, with numerous clever clues, conundrums, and curious incidents, quite impossible to unravel (unless you're Sherlock Holmes of course!). Holmes must be a lot cleverer than me, because he worked it out pretty quickly. A very clever and surprising end. I shan't say anymore than (as always) it was the least likely suspect what done it.
If you haven't read any Sherlock Holmes, or would like to return to him, I'd recommend this read. I'd also recommended to those who enjoy pitting their wits against the cleverest of detectives.

SILVER BLAZE is a great story by Arthur Conan Doyle and may have been considered one of his favorites. A brilliant horse which was a favorite with the racing public goes missing and the worse is feared. Where was the first favorite for the Wessex cup? Coupled with the beloved horse's unknown whereabouts was evidence of a drugged stable boy and a murdered trainer. What happened to the horse, how did the stable boy get drugged and who killed the trainer?

This is a great story and is delivered admirably. Holmes even shows humility in this story which is certainly not a quality that he was well known for. He says to Watson: "Because I made a blunder, my dear Watson - which is, I am afraid, a more common occurrence than anyone would think who only knew me through your memoirs."

This story also shows Holmes to have his own moral compass and has him playing a "Robin Hood" of sorts in determining who should be exonerated and given amnesty. We see Holmes has his own unique sense of right from wrong!

As Kyle Freeman wrote in his Introduction to Volume I of the Sherlock Holmes anthology, " The first in the series, "Silver Blaze," pleased Conan Doyle so much that he bet his wife a shilling she couldn't solve the mystery. The story has some of the most brilliant writing in the Holmes Canon, particularly what is probably
the most famous of all Holmes's deductions: "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time", which has come to be known by the prosaic phrase "the dog that didn't bark." In polls of various Holmes Societies around the world, it regularly rates as one of the top ten stories."

I recommend this story highly.

"To call this CD only a 'reading' of the classic Sherlock Holmes story of 'Silver Blaze' would be to devalue the beauty of this performance. Although you may have heard recordings of the Sherlock Holmes work read before with distance and haughty affectation, none of that is present in Mr. Davies storytelling performance. This CD features one man, many voices and a hefty portion of talent. This performance is fresh, approachable and inviting." -Storyteller.net Reviews

Dave Davies dramatic rendition of this Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes classic tale is well worth a listen. Dave's obvious talent for dramatic reading comes through beautifully and the production quality is excellent. Hopefully David will not stop with just this one but will continue right through the entire cannon. If you like listening to "a good read" Silver Blaze is highly recommended.

If you enjoy the intrigue of Sherlock Holmes, you are in for a real treat listening to David Davies vibrant and incredible rendition. Looking forward to future "readings" by D. Davies. You will too, once you've experience this exciting reading.
