This is the story, set in 1891, that introduces Holmes' greatest opponent, the criminal mastermind Professor Moriarty.

As is well known, The Final Problem was intended to be exactly what its name says. Conan Doyle meant to stop writing about his famous detective with this short story - equally well-known, this device failed in its purpose; only the few free surviving members of Moriarty's organization and Holmes' brother Mycroft know that Sherlock Holmes is still alive.

    " Who doesn't love Holmes?

    Like Wuthering Heights, this book is also good in that if you read only the first half, you've already done the best part. The Holmes stories really drop off in quality after Conan Doyle decided to bring him back from the dead for some $$$.

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.
