Accompany the world's greatest detective through the sinister streets of foggy London, into the most remarkable adventures imaginable: Each and every one of the stories in the volume -- "A Scandal in Bohemia," "The Red-Headed League," "A Case of Identity," "The Boscombe Valley Mystery," "The Five Orange Pips," "The Man with the Twisted Lip," or the adventures of the Blue Carbuncle, the Speckled Band, the Engineer's Thumb, the Noble Bachelor, the Beryl Coronet, and the Copper Beeches -- will thrill, delight and astound you. Watch the genius of detection grapple with treachery, duplicity, and murderous evil -- watch him solve the insoluble, bring justice to the unjustifiable, and light to questions that will take no illumination. Sherlock Holmes is the one true pastmaster of the modern mystery; if you haven't read THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES, it's time to correct that error now.
Amid the foggy streets of sinister London and the even more sinister smiling countryside, Holmes and Watson once more solve the unsolvable. In 'Speckled Band', 'The Engineer's Thumb' and nine other stories, Holmes grapples with the very extremes of treachery, duplicity and murder. (Kirkus UK)
