The one and only Sherlock Holmes is back from the dead and devoting his life once more to examining the criminal complexities of England’s capital city.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote of many dreadful murders, but the one which astonished and distressed readers the most was when the author, anxious to try something new, killed off Sherlock Holmes. Trapped in mortal combat with the dastardly Professor Moriarty, Holmes and his opponent plunged to their deaths in the Reichenbach Falls. For ten long years, Baker Street was without its most revered resident. Then, in 1903, Doyle took pity on his readers and brought the sagacious sleuth back to life. The thirteen stories included in this masterful book tell of his return. Cases of mysterious codes, persecuted millionaires, stalkers, abductions, and a meeting with “the worst man in London” are all tackled with renewed vigor. But Holmes’ old enemies are watching his every move.

Stories include: 
The Adventure of the Empty House 
The Adventure of the Norwood Builder 
The Adventure of the Dancing Men 
The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist 
The Adventure of the Priory School 
The Adventure of Black Peter 
The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton 
The Adventure of the Six Napoleons 
The Adventure of the Three Students 
The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez 
The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter 
The Adventure of the Abbey Grange 
The Adventure of the Second Stain

    " Not as good as the earlier ones. Still want to read them all. "

    " This may be the weakest of the Holmes volumes -- or is that just because I know Conan Doyle didn't really want to bring Holmes back from Reichenbach Fall? Stll, I can't bear to give Sherlock fewer than four stars, and besides, The Return does include some winners:"The Dancing Men" is fun; "Charles Augustus Milverton" certainly has its moments of surprise; "Black Peter" was quite the adventure, etc. "

    " Once again, I was not disappointed by the writing of these fantastic stories by Doyle. In this particular work, my favorite adventures were The Dancing Men, Charles Augustus Milverton, The Golden Pince-Nez, and The Three Students...but really, I loved all of the mysteries. I noted how believeable Doyle makes his characters, and how excited I get at each unexpected twist in the stories that I tried, but could never predict. The perspective from Watson keeps the reader baffled and surprised by Holmes as Watson remains to be despite the many intellectual feats his partner has triumphed. Doyle also writes with great detail of the places so that you feel as if you can actually see the scene in England. He also did not disappoint with the amazing deductions the character of Sherlock Holmes makes, which I always try to incorporate into my own observations. ; ) "
