A Study In Scarlet (1887)
The first story to feature Sherlock Holmes, wherein the detective resolves to solve the mystery of a corpse found at a derelict house with the word "RACHE" scrawled in blood on the wall beside the body. A story of lost love, revenge, and mystery!

The Sign of the Four (1890)
This, the second Sherlock Holmes mystery, begins with Holmes himself in a cocaine-induced haze, interrupted by the arrival of a distressed and beautiful young lady. Each year following the strange disappearance of her father, Miss Morstan has received a rare and lustrous pearl. Now, on the day she is summoned to meet her anonymous benefactor, she comes to consult with Holmes and Watson.

The Hound of the Baskervilles (1902)
This may be the most popular of all of the Sherlock Holmes stories. Inspired by regional mythology of the British Isles concerning hell-hounds, the tale tells of detective Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson as they are called to investigate an alleged curse upon the house of the Baskervilles.

The Valley of Fear (1914)
The plot of the novel is based very loosely on the real-life activities of the Molly Maguires and, particularly, of Pinkerton agent James McParland.The novel is divided into two parts: in the first, Holmes investigates an apparent murder and discovers that the body belongs to another man; and in the second, the story of the man originally thought to have been the victim is told.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1892)
A delight for a public which enjoys incident, mystery, and above all that matching of the wits of a clever man against the dumb resistance of the secrecy of inanimate things, which results in the triumph of the human intelligence.
