The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes

The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 "A 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.

Introduction by John Berendt.
