Not yet rated | write a review
Sherlock Holmes was the most popular character in Victorian ficiton, but when arch enemy Moriarity bumped him off at the Reichenbach Falls in 'The Final Problem' (1893), many readers were angry and dismayed. Some even cancelled their subscriptions to The Strand magazine where Holmes was the star turn. The Return of Sherlock Holmes, published in 1903 4, was Arthur Conan Doyles belated but briliant reponse. What you get for your money here is a selection of hugely enjoyable detective stories written in the authors elegant but spare prose, and the chance to test your wits against 13 classic plot set ups before the engimatic sleuth beats you to the punch with his astonishiing powers of deduction. This volume shows exactly why, more than a hundred years on, Holmes remains the worlds number one detective.
