Perhaps the most famous detective in literary history, Sherlock Holmes along with his trusty sidekick Watson, requires no introduction.
Arthur Conan Doyle wrote 62 Holmes cases (stories) between 1887 and 1927. This particular collection of 12 short stories remains a highly recommended classic. It’s hard not to marvel at the problem solving prowess of Mr Holmes and relish being immersed in Victorian London.
I enjoyed picking this up to read one or two short stories at a time rather than reading through the entire collection.
Also, if you have a Kindle you can find a decent version for almost free.
“Never trust to general impressions, my boy, but concentrate yourself upon details.”
Sherlock Holmes – scourge of criminals everywhere, whether they be lurking in London’s foggy backstreets or plotting behind the walls of an idyllic country mansion – and his faithful colleague Dr Watson, solve twelve breathtaking and perplexing mysteries.
Contained within this collection are the following tales: A Scandal in Bohemia, The Red-headed League, A Case of Identity, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, The Five Orange Pips, The Man with the Twisted Lip, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, The Adventure of the Speckled Band, The Adventure of the Engineer’s Thumb, The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor, The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet, and The Adventure of the Copper Beeches
