The complete collection ofÂ Sherlock Holmesâs adventures in crime, including all four novels and fifty-six short stories featuringÂ Sir Arthur Conan DoyleâsÂ classic hero
Volume I includes the early novelÂ A Study in Scarlet, which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock Holmes to the world. This baffling murder mystery, with the cryptic word Rache written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr. John Watson. Next,Â The Sign of FourÂ presents Holmesâs famous âseven percent solutionâ and the strange puzzle of Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked-room mystery.Â Also included are Holmesâs feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases asÂ âThe Adventure of the Speckled Band,âÂ âThe Musgrave Ritual,âÂ andÂ âThe Five Orange Pips.â
Volume II begins withÂ The Hound of the Baskervilles, a haunting novel of murder on eerie Grimpen Moor, which has rightly earned its reputation as the finest murder mystery ever written.Â The Valley of FearÂ matches Holmes against his archenemy, the master of imaginative crime, Professor Moriarty. In addition, the loyal Dr. Watson has faithfully recorded Holmesâs exploits from âThe Adventure of the Red CircleâÂ to the twelve baffling enigmas fromÂ The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes.
Conan Doyleâs incomparable tales bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street, where for more than forty years Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.
