The Complete Novels and Stories
Since his first appearance in Beeton's Christmas Annual in
1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has been one of the
most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in two
paperback volumes, Bantam presents all fifty-six short stories and
four novels featuring Conan Doyle's classic hero--a truly complete
collection of Sherlock Holmes's adventures in crime!
Volume I includes the early novel A Study in
Scarlet, which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock
Holmes to the world. This baffling murder mystery, with the cryptic
word Rache written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr.
John Watson. Next, The Sign of Four presents
Holmes's famous "seven percent solution" and the strange puzzle of
Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked-room mystery.
Also included are Holmes's feats of extraordinary detection in such
famous cases as the chilling " The Adventure of the
Speckled Band," the baffling riddle of "The
Musgrave Ritual," and the ingeniously plotted "The
Five Orange Pips," tales that bring to life a Victorian
England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B
Baker Street, where Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed
reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.
