The Complete Sherlock Holmes comprises four novels and
fifty-six short stories revolving around the world’s most
popular and influential fictional detective—the eccentric,
arrogant, and ingenious Sherlock Holmes. He and his trusted friend, Dr.
Watson, step from Holmes’s comfortable quarters at 221b Baker
Street into the swirling fog of Victorian London to exercise that unique
combination of detailed observation, vast knowledge, and brilliant
deduction. Inevitably, Holmes rescues the innocent, confounds the
guilty, and solves the most perplexing puzzles known to literature.

Volume I of The Complete Sherlock Holmes starts with
Holmes’s first appearance, A Study in Scarlet, a chilling murder
novel complete with bloodstained walls and cryptic clues, followed by
the baffling The Sign of Four, which introduces Holmes’s cocaine
problem and Watson’s future wife. The story collections The
Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes feature
such renowned tales as “A Scandal in Bohemia,”
“The Red-Headed League,” and “The Musgrave
Ritual.”
Tired of writing stories about Holmes, his
creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, killed him off at the end of
“The Final Problem,” the last tale in The Memoirs. But the
public outcry was so great that eight years later he published the
masterful The Hound of the Baskervilles, which supposedly takes place
before Holmes’s death.
The separate Volume II of The
Complete Sherlock Holmes collects the remaining accounts of
Holmes’s exploits, including “The Adventure of the Empty
House,” which reveals the elaborate circumstances behind
Holmes’s literary resurrection.
