The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes are overshadowed by the event with which they close—the meeting of the great detective and Moriarty, the Napoleon of Crime. When “The Final Problem” was first published, the struggle between Holmes and his arch nemesis, seemingly to the death, left many readers desolate at the loss of Holmes, but it also led to his immortality as a literary figure. The stories that precede it included two narratives from Holmes himself—on a mutiny at sea and a treasure hunt in a Sussex country house—as well as a meeting with his brilliant brother Mycroft.

Included in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes are

  • “Silver Blaze,”
  • “The Yellow Face,”
  • “The Stock-Broker’s Clerk,”
  • “The ‘Gloria Scott,’”
  • “The Musgrave Ritual,”
  • “The Reigate Puzzle,”
  • “The Crooked Man,”
  • “The Resident Patient,”
  • “The Greek Interpreter,”
  • “The Naval Treaty,” and
  • “The Final Problem.”

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.
