In The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet, a banker, Mr. Alexander Holder, makes a loan of £50,000 to a socially prominent client, who leaves a beryl coronet—one of the most valuable public possessions in existence—as collateral. Feeling that he must not leave this rare and precious piece of jewelry in his personal safe at the bank, he takes it home with him.

Awakened by a noise in the night, he is horrified to see his son playing with the coronet and apparently trying to bend it. Three beryls are now missing from it. In a panic, Mr. Holder travels to see Holmes, who agrees to take the case.

    " A collection of wonderful stories featuring our beloved Sherlock Holmes and his dear friend Watson. I very much enjoy the criminal and non-criminal mysteries that are featured in these further works of Doyle's and intend to continue my love affair with the Memoirs. "

    " What a great read! I love the mysteries, the characters, and the dialog has made me laugh out loud several times. I will have to work my way through the whole series now that I know how great these are. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 5/10/2011

    " The original "procedural", but in fiction form and focusing on logic instead of high tech science. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roy | 5/7/2011

    " This is a fun book and I think makes the current movie (made in 2009) look even better. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle certainly made him out to be quite the character, much more so than his secondary authors did. "

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.
