Arthur Conan Doyle never wasted time in getting his stories moving. His plots are always direct and refreshingly lucid, and the narrative has a velocity that sweeps you along right to the end. This was no doubt a large part of his immense worldwide success. Not surprisingly, each time he tried to end the series, his fans would howl in protest. But, as he says in the preface to his last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, all good things must come to an end. And so it is with this series, as we have now arrived at the end of the Sherlock Holmes tales, Conan Doyle's most magnificent creation.

This last volume contains one novel, The Valley of Fear, and two collections of short stories: His Last Bow and The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes.

Listener Opinions

    " Awesome - you can really find out what all those obscure 19th century gadgets did, see Holmes's disguises, see the difference between a trap and a hansom cab. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 2/13/2014

    " I loved these stories as a child, indeed Sherlock Holmes may well be my first childhood hero. I haven't read them for years, and it would be interesting to do so now, with the benefit of maturity. Perhaps I may find new things in them. They are certainly a great introduction to the late Victorian era, with echoes of the far-flung empire and the intrigues of pre-War Europe setting the wider scene for the crimes of Londons dark and busy streets. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Malcolm | 2/8/2014

    " This book has been a constant companion for me since my father gave it to me as a rather young person. All the original Holmes stories, with the original illustrations from the Strand. Just lovely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carissa Norris | 2/7/2014

    " From 3rd grade to college, my Dad and I read every single one of the Sherlock Holmes stories. I ADORE Sherlock Holmes. It's more than the mystery. It's the way Holmes waxes poetic at times and philosophic at others. It's the unique and close relationship of Holmes and Watson. It's an extraordinary man with genius talent. The cases of Sherlock Holmes are to be read and cherished over and over for generations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 2/1/2014

    " Outstanding. Even a century later these stories are fun to read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 2/1/2014

    " A gift from my mom and our shared love of a good mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Rawls | 1/31/2014

    " A definite must have for any fan of Sherlock Holmes. Not only does it contain 37 original short stories (as well as the complete novel "Hound of the Baskervilles") as printed in the Strand Magazine between 1891 and 1905, but it also reprints the illustrations of Sidney Paget which first breathed the visual reality into these wonderful works. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin Allen | 1/31/2014

    " I'm a little bit in love with Sherlock Holmes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Read1000books | 1/19/2014

    " I wanted to read "The Hound Of The Baskervilles" in its original format along with Sidney Paget's illustrations. I found them here. This is probably my fourth time to read this novel and it is still great! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yrinsyde | 1/14/2014

    " I discovered Sherlock Holmes when I was in primary school - and I loved the stories! I still do. When I saw this book at a second-hand bookshop in Bendigo, I had to buy it. It is a lovely collection in facsimile with the original illustrations that appeared in the Strand Magazine in early 1900. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate G | 1/4/2014

    " Amazing! I love mysteries and I thoroughly enjoyed trying to figure out the mystery before the end. It was perfect for my current responsibilities. I would read a short story one night and then start another one when I had the time (without worrying I would forget some of the details!). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mitchell Gage | 1/1/2014

    " Still have it on my shelf now... 20 years later :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 10/15/2013

    " Best guess of when I first read Holmes was my mid-teens, maybe a bit earlier. Probably the single biggest factor in my life-long struggle with chronic Anglophilia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle Boudreau | 10/13/2013

    " Read this when I was a kid. It is great "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Bladek | 9/29/2013

    " He's the best ill-mannered cocaine shooting detective genius out there. And unlike modern detectives, he didn't have to be psychic to get things done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 8/24/2013

    " FANTASTIC! I LOVE Sherlock Holmes. I could never pick one story as better than another so I have the whole set. They are fantastic if you want to just read one or if you read the whole thing. I really reccommend that everyone read at least one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fawn | 8/15/2013

    " not great print quality, but paget's illustrations are classics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Ingemar | 5/23/2013

    " I have read these several times over, and enjoy them every time. If you're looking for a quick, great mystery classic, look no farther than Sherlock Holmes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 5/6/2013

    " I like the stories well enough as I am reading them, but the size of the volume makes it difficult for me to want to pick it up. A little too daunting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Morris | 3/21/2013

    " I picked up a copy in a bookstall in an antique mall. Reading these again after watching the Jeremy Brett videos reinforced my liking of both the stories and the TV interpretations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne-marie | 11/19/2012

    " Nothing like the good old stuff to settle you down when your tired and discouraged. These stories never grow old. They comfort one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 9/19/2012

    " After watching the "Sherlock" series via BBC, I thought it was time to revisit Doyle. I hadn't read him since "Hound of the Baskervilles." The TV series "Sherlock" will be airing this Sunday on PBS. Check it out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ernest Jordan | 6/26/2012

    " Good book if ya love Sherlock Holmes Stories. "

    " These were a super fun read. I just love the Holmes character. Super smart with a touch of crazy. Fun stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lief | 11/6/2011

    " Whew! Finally finished this compilation of all the Holmes mysteries... good stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy | 9/7/2011

    " I know...illustrated, right? They're the original illustrations from the stories when they were published in The strand Magazine. I love Sherlock Holmes. It makes we want to be more observant of the things around me. I've started trying to deduce things about the people around me on the subway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanna | 7/8/2011

    " Sherlock Holmes with it's original illustrations. As it was meant to be read I believe. Watson is hot. Ha! "

    " petualangan sherlock holmes mengalahkan penjahat-penjahat kelas atas Kota London selalu patut diikuti. delightful adalah kata yang tepat untuk buku ini "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annika | 3/23/2011

    " liked it, but not as much as the ones "written by dr Watson". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 3/21/2011

    " I never knew Sherlock Holmes was so awesome. There is so much adventure and even humor in these tiny stories. I kept laughing out loud, and when people asked me what was so funny, I felt weird saying 'Sherlock Holmes,' but it's true.
    I think I've got another obsession.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 3/12/2011

    " Not as long as the usual holmes books but still exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Casey | 3/5/2011

    " Took a bit of getting used to, but went by pretty quick. Since each "chapter" is just it's own separate story, it makes it easy to put down and take a break. Liked it overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 1/30/2011

    " Even when he's not at his best, Holmes is still good. I had forgotten how dark this collection was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harry | 1/15/2011

    " Another collection of twelve Sherlock Holmes stories. These were supposedly released after the retirement of the famous detective. I read this one before, many years ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ampa | 11/18/2010

    " I just finished The Adventures of the Three Garridebs. It is one of my favorite stories because you get to see a glimpse of Holmes' love for his friend Watson. Now I am reading The Adventure of Thor Bridge. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie Gayle | 10/24/2010

    " I'm sad to be done rereading the Sherlock Holmes books, but I have to admit this one was much better than the last couple. Yay for going out on a high note! I especially liked the ones done from Holmes' perspective. (Now on to Alisa's fan fic :D)

    On my iPhone. The last one! "

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.
