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 combine detailed
observation and vast knowledge with brilliant deduction. Inevitably,
Holmes rescues the innocent, confounds the guilty, and solves the most
perplexing puzzles known to literature.
Volume II of The
Complete Sherlock Holmes begins with The Return of Sherlock Holmes. Sir
Arthur Conan Doyle, tired of writing about Holmes, had killed him off at
the end of “The Final Problem,” the last tale in The
Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (found in Volume I of The Complete Sherlock
Holmes). Public demand for new Holmes stories was so great, however,
that Conan Doyle eventually resurrected him. The first story in The
Return, “The Adventure of the Empty House,” features Conan
Doyle’s infamously inventive explanation of how Holmes escaped
what seemed like certain death.
This volume also includes
another collection of Holmes stories, His Last Bow as well as Conan
Doyle’s final full-length Holmes novel, The Valley of Fear.
