This collection featuring legendary consulting detective Sherlock Holmes includes the short stories “The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone” and “The Problem of Thor Bridge.”

In “The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone,” Dr. Watson arrives at 221B Baker Street to find his old friend and colleague keen on a case. Holmes has taken it upon himself to find the missing Crown diamond, the Mazarin stone, which has been stolen by swarthy big-game hunter Count Negretto Sylvius. When the count pays Holmes a visit, the brilliant detective must rely on his cleverness to learn the jewel’s location and wrap up the case.

In “The Problem of Thor Bridge,” Neil Gibson, who has earned the nickname the Gold King for his status as the world’s greatest gold-mining magnate, seeks Holmes’ help in finding his wife’s real killer. His governess, Miss Dunbar, has been convicted of the crime due to an abundance of evidence against her—including a gun in her wardrobe—but Gibson believes her innocent. A few enlightening revelations, including the unhappy state of the Gibsons’ marriage, lead Holmes and Watson down the path toward the truth.

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.
