Eddie's pursuit of the story behind the theft brings him into contact with a colorful cast of characters, including a respected restaurateur with a secret past who had donated the statue to the church, a cantankerous old priest with a taste for fine wine and expensive cigars, a stylishly dressed bookie who has the best table in the best restaurants in town, a legendary hitman who uses countless different methods to kill his prey, and an aging, still-volatile Mafia soldier who operates a funeral home but dreams of owning a tiki bar. And then there is Phyllis, a raven-haired beauty who was Eddie's first love and had disappeared without a trace fifteen years before. Phyllis makes a startling appearance as Eddie is dining at a popular restaurant, nailing him to his seat and disrupting his personal life while he hustles to solve the mystery of the stolen statue, a mystery with more twists and turns than he could ever have imagined.

Kenneth Cranham and Alex Lanipekun star in these eleven gritty contemporary crime dramas Idiosyncratic detective duo Max Matthews and Sean Armitage are back for three more series, in which they expertly extract confessions from their suspects during the course of one interview. Their relationship has evolved since they were first paired up, back when Armitage was a rookie constable, but their interrogation technique is as incisive as ever.

As Matthews and Armitage subject them to a grilling, the truth is revealed, in all its messiness and moral complexity.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Seasons Edition--Spring)

Author: Arthur Conan Doyle Narrator: Simon Bubb Release Date: April 2021

It was a perfect day, with a bright sun and a few fleecy clouds in the heavens. The trees and wayside hedges were just throwing out their first green shoots, and the air was full of the pleasant smell of the moist earth. To me at least there was a strange contrast between the sweet promise of the spring and this sinister quest upon which we were engaged. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twelve stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his iconic detective. Venture back in time to Victorian London to join literature's greatest detective team - the brilliant Sherlock Holmes and his devoted assistant, Dr. Watson - as they investigate a dozen of their best-known cases.

Additional mysteries include 'The Blue Carbuncle,' 'The Engineer's Thumb,' 'The Beryl Coronet,' 'The Copper Beeches,' and others. Narrated by award-winning voice talent Simon Bubb, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Seasons Edition--Spring) is one of three titles available in March 2021. The spring season also will include Emma and The Secret Garden.
