The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes first introduced Arthur Conan Doyle's brilliant detective the readers of The Strand Magazine. In these twenty three tales, collected here in one volume, you have some of the best detective yarns ever penned. In his consulting room at 221B Baker Street, the master sleuth receives a stream of clients all presenting him with baffling and bizarre mysteries to unravel. There is, for example, the man who is frightened for his life because of the arrival of an envelope containing five orange pips; there is the terrified woman who is aware that her life is in danger and cannot explain the whistling sounds she hears in the night; and there is the riddle of the missing butler and the theft of an ancient treasure. In the last story, there is the climatic battle between Holmes and his arch enemy, ‘the Napoleon of Crime’ Professor Moriarty. Holmes, with trusty Watson by his side, is equal to these and the other challenges in this splendid collection.

This edition contains the original illustrations from Strand Magazine drawn by Sidney Paget.

4.0 Elementary, my dear...
I came to Sherlock Holmes fairly late in my mystery reading career, and the result was an odd experience. It was very much like coming home to someplace I'd never been. Though I'd never read much, if any, of Arthur Conan Doyle's work, there was something familiar and comfortable about it all. It ...
