From the Back Cover:

A body on the London Underground; the strange disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax; a parcel containing some coarse salt and two freshly severed human ears ... In the course of these investigations, Holmes himself is truck down by a virulent Eastern disease, and we are reintroduced to his remarkable brother Mycroft -- 'all other men are specialists, but his specialism is onmiscience'.

Finally, with the approach of the German War, Holmes emerges from retirement among his books and bees on the South Downs to lay his unique intellect at the disposal of the British Government, with the historic results disclosed in His Last Bow.

About the Author:

Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859. Sent off to boarding school, he cut his teeth as a story - teller amusing his schoolmates with tales and writing letters home to his mother.
He practiced medicine and, in 1900, volunteered as a medic in Africa during the Boer War - he was later knighted for his service. Doyle lost a son, two brothers in law, and two nephews to the Great War. He is remembered for the Sherlock Holmes stories and his novel The Lost World.
