A tie-in edition of Conan Doyle''s first collection of
Sherlock Holmes stories, with an introduction by Sherlock
creator Mark Gatiss.
The hit BBC series Sherlock offers a fresh, contemporary
take on the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories, and has helped
introduce a whole new generation of fans to the legendary
detective. In this new edition of Conan Doyle''s first collection
of short stories, Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss explains
how these gripping tales inspired and influenced the new
Sherlock: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
contains twelve short stories first published in The
Strand magazine between 1891 and 1892 and then published as a
collection in October 1892. It includes some of Conan Doyle''s best
tales of murder and mystery, such as ''The Adventures of the
Speckled Band'', in which the strange last words of a dying woman
''It was the band, the speckled band!'' and a inexplicable
whistling in the night are the only clues Sherlock Holmes has to
prevent another murder; and ''The Five Orange Pips'', in which an
untimely death and the discovery of the letter containing five
orange pips lead to a cross-Atlantic conspiracy.
