Dr. Watson comments, “The stage lost a fine actor” when Sherlock Holmes chose to devote his formidable talents to the solution of crime. In two of these stories collected here, “The Reigate Squire” and “The Adventure of Beryl Coronet,” Holmes demonstrates his thespian powers as he unravels the mysteries. In the first he explains a rural murder, while in the second, Holmes’ timely intervention prevents something of a national—even royal—scandal. “The Boscombe Valley Mystery” takes Holmes and Watson once again to the English countryside, but the famous detective uncovers old Australian animosities to get to the root of the problem. “The Yellow Face,” which concludes this volume, is one of the most fascinating in the canon, raising some key social issues of the time.

Author Bio: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
