The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

This collection of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes includes many of the famous cases – and great strokes of brilliance – that made the legendary detective one of fiction’s most popular creations. Also included in this collection is Sherlock Holmes’s autobiography, titled Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. Holmes, accompanied by his devoted amanuensis Dr. Watson, leaves his smoke-filled room in Baker Street to engage in battle against the forces of treachery, intrigue, and evil in cases such as “The Speckled Band,” in which a terrified woman begs them for help in solving the mystery surrounding the death of her sister, and “A Scandal in Bohemia,” which portrays a European king being blackmailed by his mistress. In “Silver Blaze,” Holmes and Watson look into the disappearance of a racehorse and the brutal slaying of its trainer. In “The Final Problem,” Holmes finally confronts his archenemy, the evil Professor Moriarty, also known as “the Napoleon of crime.” In “Silver Blaze,” the pair investigates the disappearance of a racehorse and the violent slaying of its trainer.
