9780895772770: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (The World's Best Reading)

Accompany the world's greatest detective through the sinister streets of foggy London, into the most remarkable adventures imaginable: Each and every one of the stories in the volume -- "A Scandal in Bohemia," "The Red-Headed League," "A Case of Identity," "The Boscombe Valley Mystery," "The Five Orange Pips," "The Man with the Twisted Lip," or the adventures of the Blue Carbuncle, the Speckled Band, the Engineer's Thumb, the Noble Bachelor, the Beryl Coronet, and the Copper Beeches -- will thrill, delight and astound you. Watch the genius of detection grapple with treachery, duplicity, and murderous evil -- watch him solve the insoluble, bring justice to the unjustifiable, and light to questions that will take no illumination. Sherlock Holmes is the one true pastmaster of the modern mystery; if you haven't read THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES, it's time to correct that error now.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1891-92) brings together the first twelve short stories Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about Holmes and Watson. These follow Holmes's introduction in the first two novels, A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of the Four.

Product Description:

THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is a series of stories in which the great detective uses his superior deductive powers. In THE RED-HEADED LEAGUE, Holmes finds that an unusually large amount of gold Napoleons are the reason a group of thieves express a keen interest in a particular bank. Whereas, in THE ADVENTURE OF THE SPECKLED BAND, a young woman's sister dies suspiciously - her last words: 'it was...the speckled band'. Holmes deduces what the 'speckled band' is and, in his inimitable way, penetrates many other mysterious, strange and sometimes frightening events.
