Book + cd "Sherlock Holmes and Mystery of Boscombe Pool with MP3 CD" — Артур Конан Дойл

В Боскомской долине убит пожилой арендатор Чарльз Маккарти. Перед гибелью он повздорил с сыном Джеймсом, на которого и падает подозрение. Джеймс заявляет, что встретил отца в лесу случайно, тот подал возглас "Коу", а, увидев сына, удивился и, после спора о невесте, прогнал его. Джеймс ушёл, но услышав предсмертный крик отца, прибежал обратно. Перед смертью отец успел сказать только слово "a rat", а также Джеймс заметил лежащий на земле плащ, который затем исчез. Джеймсу грозила виселица, однако Шерлок Холмс при помощи своего метода выходит на настоящего виновника - крупного землевладельца Джона Тэрнера, который в юности промышлял разбоем в австралийской провинции Ballarat.

Его шайка ограбила почтовую карету, Джон пощадил жизнь кучера Маккарти и уехал в Англию. Вскоре Маккарти разыскал Тэрнера на его новом месте и буквально сел ему на шею. Узнав о смертельной болезни Тэрнера, он захотел, чтобы дочь Тэрнера вышла замуж за его сына. В лесу он должен был встретиться с Тэрнером и позвал его австралийским кличем "Коу".

Lestrade summons Holmes to a community in Herefordshire, where a local landowner has been murdered outdoors. The deceased's estranged son is strongly implicated. Holmes quickly determines that a mysterious third man may be responsible for the crime, unraveling a thread involving a secret criminal past, thwarted love, and blackmail. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson take a train to Boscombe Valley, in Herefordshire. En route, Holmes reads the news and briefs Watson on their new case. John Turner, a widower and a major landowner who has a daughter named Alice, lives there with a fellow expatriate from Australia, Charles McCarthy, a widower who has a son named James.

Charles has been found dead near Boscombe Pool. It was reported that he was there to meet someone. Two witnesses testify that they saw Charles walking into the woods followed by James, who was carrying a gun. Patience Moran, daughter of a lodgekeeper, says that she saw Charles and James arguing, that, when James raised his hand as if to hit his father, she ran to her mother, and that while she was telling her mother what she saw James rushed to their house seeking help.

The Morans followed James back to the Pool, where they found his father dead. James was arrested and charged with murder. Alice Turner believes that James is innocent and has contacted Lestrade, a Scotland Yard detective who in turn has asked Holmes' help. James confirms the testimonies of the witnesses, but explains that he went to the woods to hunt, not to follow his father.
