Sherlock Holmes. Irascible rogue. Rational, sardonic, intrepid. Suspicious of both the worst of London's slums and the best of Scotland Yard. Acerbic and mysterious, a brawler and a genius. Friend of Watson, foe of Moriarty, entangled with Irene Adler. Brilliant solver of the most treacherous crimes. Adventure detective. Created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and loosely based on the real-life Dr. Joseph Bell, history's first forensic detective, the character of Sherlock Holmes has thrilled mystery readers for more than a century. Now, Sherlock Holmes: Adventure Detective collects the first twelve Holmes episodes in a cool four-volume set specially designed for younger readers. Book Three of Sherlock Holmes: Adventure Detective contains three classic Sherlock Holmes stories, including "The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb," a tale of curiosity and greed and one that takes place in the English countryside some distance from London. Holmes was the model for every detective created since his day. Follow Holmes as he solves a series of crimes that even Scotland Yard can't crack, plunging into the teeming streets of London and the countryside beyond in search of danger and the truth.
