Once again Arthur Conan Doyle presents a series of cases which baffle the police, but are no match for Sherlock Holmes and his trusty companion Dr. Watson.

In Black Peter, the peace of rural Sussex is disturbed by the discovery of a seafarer's body pinned to the wall of his hut with a harpoon. In the Golden Pince-Nez, a young man is found dead clutching a pair of spectacles, yet he had perfect sight. Who is the short-sighted murderer?

In the Missing Three-Quarter, Holmes takes on a novel case when a Rugby player goes missing the day before a major University match. A woman tied to a chair; her husband clubbed to death with a poker; a case of robbery with violence? But all is not what it seems in the case of the Abbey Grange.

The series ends with the Second Stain where a top secret document that could lead Britain into war goes missing. Holmes is put to the test to save his country as well as his reputation.

    " Did you know Sherlock has a brother - Mycroft - who is even more observent? These stories provide more insight into the great detective's character and background. The original illustrations are also fun. "

    " This was fantastic. Conan Doyle has such a nice, light touch with the pen, and the stories are exciting and enjoyable. Exactly what I needed on a winter break. "

    " Sherlock Holmes is the best detective ever! The stories are very absorbing, even though they were written in slightly (slightly!) old English. "

    " Fantastic collection that takes you through Sherlock's adventures in order of publication culminating in his mysterious death!!! Lots of fun and proper grammar! "

    " The Sherlock Holmes stories are so outlandish, they might as well be in fantasy genre. In my book, that makes them excellent reads. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 6/23/2010

    " Many of these mysteries have been done in film and tv. Was very interesting to read them, and cross over some of the famous quotes that are used so often. It's hard to think of Sherlock and Watson as characters, they have been so imbued into our culture they deserve to be real. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 6/21/2010

    " I loved this collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories. It was perfect early summer reading to have crime, drugs, and wit--all rolled into one book. "

    " I was pleasantly surprised. I had picked up some Sherlock Holmes years ago and could not get through the book. Now, I found it amusing and clever. I also liked that this was a series of short stories. i could not wait to get to the next one and I was disappointed when the ride was over. "

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.
