Since his first appearance in "Beeton's Christmas Annual "in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created.Now, in two paperback volumes, Bantam Classics presents "all" fifty-six short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle's classic hero-a truly complete collection of SherlockHolmes's adventures in crime
Volume I includes the early novel "A Study in Scarlet," which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock Holmes to the world. This bafflingmurder mystery, with the cryptic word "Rache" written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr. John Watson. Next, "The Sign of Four "presents Holmes's famous"seven percent solution" and the strange puzzle of Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked-room mystery. Also included are Holmes's feats of extraordinary deception in such famous cases asthe chilling "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," the baffling riddle of "The Musgrave Ritual," and the ingeniously plotted "The Five Orange Pips."
Volume II begins with "The Hound of Baskervilles," a haunting novel of murder on eerie Grimpen Moor, which has rightly earned its reputation as the finest murder mystery ever written."The Valley of Fear" matches Holmes against his archenemy, the master of imaginative crime, Professor Moriarty. In addition, the loyal Dr. Watson has faithfully recorded Holmes's feats ofextraordinary detection in such famous cases as the thrilling "The Adventure of the Red Circle," Holmes's tragic and fortunately premature farewell in "The Final Problem,"and the twelve baffling adventures from "The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes."
Conan Doyle's incomparable tales bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, andthe famous lodgings at 221 B Baker Street, where for more than forty years Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.
