The one and only Sherlock Holmes is back from the dead and devoting his life once more to examining the criminal complexities of England’s capital city. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote of many dreadful murders, but the one which astonished and distressed readers the most was when the author, anxious to try something new, killed off Sherlock Holmes. Trapped in mortal combat with the dastardly Professor Moriarty, Holmes and his opponent plunged to their deaths in the Reichenbach Falls. For ten long years, Baker Street was without its most revered resident. Then, in 1903, Doyle took pity on his readers and brought the sagacious sleuth back to life. The thirteen stories included in this masterful book tell of his return. Cases of mysterious codes, persecuted millionaires, stalkers, abductions, and a meeting with “the worst man in London” are all tackled with renewed vigor. But Holmes’ old enemies are watching his every move. Stories include:  The Adventure of the Empty House  The Adventure of the Norwood Builder  The Adventure of the Dancing Men  The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist  The Adventure of the Priory School  The Adventure of Black Peter  The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton  The Adventure of the Six Napoleons  The Adventure of the Three Students  The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez  The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter  The Adventure of the Abbey Grange  The Adventure of the Second Stain

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.
