The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twelve short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. It was first published on 14 October 1892. Follow the brilliant Sherlock Holmes and his devoted assistant, Dr. Watson — as they investigate a dozen of their best-known cases. Featured stories in this collection include several of the author's personal favorites: "A Scandal in Bohemia" — in which a king is blackmailed by a former lover and Holmes matches wits with the only woman to attract his open admiration — plus "The Speckled Band," "The Red-Headed League," and "The Five Orange Pips." Additional mysteries include "The Blue Carbuncle," "The Engineer’s Thumb," "The Beryl Coronet," "The Copper Beeches," and four others.

The stories known collectively as The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes turned the literary detective into a household name and are the best-loved of Conan Doyle's Holmes stories. From "The Scandal of Bohemia," a case in which Holmes is famously outwitted by a woman, to the "The Five Orange Pips," in which Holmes is pitted against the Ku Klux Klan, to "The Final Problem," in which Holmes and his archenemy, Professor Moriarty, plunge to their deaths at the Reichenbach Falls, the stories bear witness to the flowering of Doyle's genius.
