The Return of Sherlock Holmes (Paperback)
"The Return of Sherlock Holmes" is a collection of thirteen detective stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous literary creation, Sherlock Holmes. These tales originally appeared in magazines in 1903 and 1904 and were published together as a collection in 1905. Doyle had stopped writing Sherlock Holmes stories after 1893, when Holmes appeared to have died in "The Final Problem". However, the public continued to press Doyle for more tales of his most famous character, especially after the publication of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" in 1902, which was set before Holmes' apparent death. Contained within this collection are some of Doyle's own personal favorites of all the Holmes' stories, such as "The Adventure of the Empty House", which addresses the mystery of how Holmes had escaped death at the hands of the diabolical Professor Moriarty, "The Adventure of the Dancing Men", the detective's heart-pounding race to solve a mysterious code and save his client's life, and "The Adventure of the Priory School", the strange disappearance of a young heir from school and the mystery of a murdered teacher. This collection is a must-read for all Sherlock Holmes fans. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.
