Publisher Description

A Scandal in Bohemia pits Holmes against the beautiful and intelligent Irene Adler, an Opera singer who possesses evidence of her affair with a Bohemian King. As the King’s agent, Holmes employs a number of clever disguises in his attempt to outwit his opponent and obtain the photographic evidence she carefully guards. “The Woman” is not to be outdone.

The Red Headed League is one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s favorite Sherlock Holmes tales. In it, Sherlock must deduce the underlying motive for the Red Headed Leagues’ engagement of a clerk with fiery red hair, for an overly generous salary. After alerting the police that a robbery will occur, Holmes comments to Watson that solving such problems serves to alleviate the boredom of everyday life that he so dreads.

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.
