    " A really good detective story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen Theaker | 1/13/2014

    " Bit of a cheat adding this when I've got the full book still to read, but it's nice to keep track. Partly read outside school, partly on the bus. When I get through these Children's 60s I'm going to need a new supply of tiny books... It was very good, of course! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yai'nee Anderson | 1/7/2014

    " Book had great suspense and captures you from the start. Doyle surely knows how to have the audience in the palm of your hand and wondering how to solve the mystery. He gives amazing figurative language and excellent details.When reading his books there is nevera dull moment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Koivu | 1/6/2014

    " Sinister dealings and Holmes in action! The Speckled Band gets Sherlock Holmes out of his Baker Street residence for a night and shows that he's quick in more ways than one. This may have been the very first Holmes story I ever read if I'm remembering correctly and it was a joy to read again! "

    " As always nice and gripping mystery "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 8/31/2013

    " So far, one of my favorites :) I think the key to the stories I seem to enjoy more is the length... I think Holmes benefits from a few extra pages... More details to be had :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristine | 7/6/2013

    " Good mystery book...keeps you guessing to the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marts (Thinker) | 6/28/2013

    " The great Holmes is put to the test once again to solve a mysterious death, well read it to find out the outcome. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meg | 5/18/2013

    " A free download from the app store to my iPhone. I wanted to check out whether I'd like reading on my phone. I like it for traveling, but at home, I still prefer having a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace Frickenstein | 4/20/2013

    " confusing and misleading at first but makes sence in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Derek | 3/25/2013

    " A shortie, but a goodie! :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zoltán Gecse | 2/18/2013

    " It wasn't as good as I expected. Some of the stories were good, but nothing extraordinary. The most annoying part of the short stories were the circumlocutions, and the overmistificated status and case-solved skilles of Sherlock Holmes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Mustread | 1/3/2013

    " Great reminder of the joy of reading Arthur Conan Doyle and "seeing" Sherlock Holmes solve a mysterious case involving, gypsies, murder, love and marriage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 12/5/2012

    " I enjoyed this book concerning Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson coming to the aid of a young girl, who is in fear for her life. Her sister has died for no reason, and she fears she is next. This was one of my favorite stories, and made it to his TV series. A very good read for all of Mr. Holmes fans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 11/15/2012

    " This was a good story. Chris has a HUGE book full of these and I look forward to the others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 6/23/2012

    " I really liked this Sherlock Holmes short story, was really interesting and the method of murder was certainly different :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ragne | 5/7/2012

    " An excellent story. In this story, you'll find both action and mystery. Several of the Holmes-stories are quite easy to figure out early on, not so here. I got involved with the characters, and had to really think to figure it out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Yoak | 5/1/2012

    " This is another of the stories that I remembered clearly. It was extremely nostalgic even if the story is rather insubstantial "

    " my favorite from the collection "

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.
