A Penguin Classic Hardcover


Emerging from their smoke-filled rooms at 21B Baker Street, Holmes and Watson grapple with the forces of crime that stalk the streets of London. From the first story, "A Scandal in Bohemia" where Holmes is foiled by the quick thinking of '"the woman," Irene Adler, to what was presumed to be the last, "The Final Problem'" where Holmes at last comes face to face with the diabolical Professor Moriarty, this selection presents the very best of Arthur Conan Doyle's iconic detective.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was born in Edinburgh where he qualified as a doctor, but it was his writing which brought him fame, with the creation of Sherlock Holmes, the first scientific detective. He was also a convert to spiritualism and a social reformer who used his investigative skills to prove the innocence of individuals. View titles by Arthur Conan Doyle
