Gathering together in one volume the later exploits of Sherlock Holmes, the world’s first consulting detective, His Last Bow includes tales published individually between 1908 and 1917. It also contains one early story, 1892’s “The Adventure of the Cardboard Box,” which, with its themes of adultery, was previously considered too scandalous for American audiences.

In these eight stories, Holmes must contend with mysterious bearded men, stolen secret submarine plans, a missing lady aristocrat, and his own near-fatal illness. The stories contained in His Last Bow are “The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge,” “The Adventure of the Cardboard Box,” “The Adventure of the Red Circle,” “The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans,” “The Adventure of the Dying Detective,” “The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax,” “The Adventure of the Devil’s Foot,” and “His Last Bow.”

About the Author
Author Arthur Conan Doyle

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.
