There is no better description of this book than that of Dr. Watson himself: The friends of Mr. Sherlock Holmes will be glad to learn that he is still alive and well, though somewhat crippled by occasional attacks of rheumatism. He has, for many years, lived in a small farm upon the downs five miles from Eastbourne, where his time is divided between philosophy and agriculture. During this period of rest he has refused the most princely offers to take up various cases, having determined that his retirement was a permanent one. The approach of the German war caused him, however, to lay his remarkable combination of intellectual and practical activity at the disposal of the government, with historical results which are recounted in His Last Bow. Several previous experiences which have lain long in my portfolio have been added to His Last Bow, so as to complete the volume.

Stories included are:
The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge
The Adventure of the Cardboard Box
The Adventure of the Red Circle
The Adventure of the Bruce Partingon Papers
The Adventure of the Dying Detective
The Disappearance of Lady Carfax
The Adventure of the Devil's Foot
His Last Bow

    " As with all short story collections some of these tales were far better than others. I very much enjoyed it, however, and I love the varied situations which Holmes is put into. If I meet a detective more intriguing and intelligent than he is then I will be astounded. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracey | 2/9/2014

    " This first edition was actually published by George H Doran Company, and it has 308 pages. "

    " Selalu mencintai kisah Holmes. Petualangan Detektif Yang Sekarat pastinya jadi kasus yang paling kusukai. ^^ "

    " Well... I've finally "met" Moriarty. I'm a little disappointed. He just can't live up to his own press! I'm just expecting "more." Ha. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/29/2014

    " Good, except for the title story, which was almost unreadably turgid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carlos Burga | 1/18/2014

    " Once again Conan Doyle delivers the most riveting stories of intrigue. One is tempted to say that knowing that the end was near, Conan Doyle weaves some of the most fascinating, captivating and page-turning adventures of Holmes. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any person who was once entertained by a one of Sherlock Holmes' adventures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisha | 1/16/2014

    " Wasn't as familiar with some of these stories. I liked "The Adventure of the Dying Detective," "The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax" and "His Last Bow." Some of the others were more or less gruesome in detail, but not more than the other collections of Holmes stories. "His Last Bow" was very different, being written, not from Watson's point of view, but in the third person, and taking place right on the eve of World War I, when the world was about to change big time. Interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aleisha Z Coleman | 1/9/2014

    " lovely collection with the adventures of wisteria lodge being some of the best crime storytelling ever.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karin | 10/27/2013

    " This is a good collectio of stories to fill in time until the next book arrives at the library.It's especially easy to read on the Kindle "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mad_Maudie | 9/6/2013

    " Another episode involving my all-time favorite sleuth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 8/24/2013

    " Part of my continuing saga to read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories. This isn't bad, with the exception of the last story, which is rather weak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Maddox | 7/2/2013

    " As with all the Sherlock short stories its a good bed time book, easy to pick up and put down but written with a warm that makes the beloved characters spring to life in your minds eye "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 3/15/2013

    " Another enjoyable collection of stories. My favorite was the Adventure of the Dying Detective. "

    " An excellent plot with a little hint of aventure in this Sherlock Holmes series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zonnah | 2/1/2013

    " Out of all the Sherlock books so far this one was my least favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deviant Geek | 7/12/2012

    " Short stories of Sherlock Holmes .. Impressive and addictive. I wish they wont end.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Gillway | 6/19/2012

    " This collection has one story which was redone in the recent TV series. The stories maintain a high standard of intrigue and suspense. "

    " Not as good as the previous books but still a good read. "

    " **This book is not the same edition that I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andreas Strom | 6/25/2011

    " A good collection of more Holmes stories. Great detecting as always, only the final story was a huge letdown. Not really worthy as the title story... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cameron | 5/6/2011

    " I still like this series and have continued to enjoy them. There are a few stories in here that are OK and some that were just great. If you like mystery or just a good story try these books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 2/21/2011

    " Another enjoyable collection of stories. My favorite was the Adventure of the Dying Detective. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 1/10/2011

    " Almost through my rereading of the Canon in a year. This one was shorter than I remembered it, and Doyle is definitely recycling some of his earlier plots, but there is some really nice writing, particularly in the title story. Still a 5. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 12/12/2010

    " The short story His Last Bow is terrific. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesa | 11/22/2010

    " Another episode involving my all-time favorite sleuth. "

    " Let me just say I love Sherlock Holmes. I would totally marry him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 9/3/2010

    " Some good stories, one of which takes place on the eve of World War I. Apparently this story was written when World War I was in its third year, and Doyle inserted a bit of propaganda into the story. Definitely some enjoyable stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 9/2/2010

    " Another solid collection of Holmes' adventures. I particularly enjoy "His Last Bow". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 6/25/2010

    " More stories of Sherlock Holmes with a surprising tale at the end "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 4/14/2010

    " Includes the Adventure of the Dying Detective, a story that further proves to me the Sherlock Holmes series is a tender bromance masquerading as crime novels. Maybe this is a strange reaction, but I just think it's so adorable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 3/6/2010

    " One of the better collection of short stories put together by Doyle, also one of the latter (I believe). As always, the cases are fully explained at the ending ... no sooner. Not really done in a cheesy way, luckily. Well written. Good plots. "

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
