Den berühmtesten Detektiv der Geschichte, der mit seinem messerscharfen Verstand und seiner Ermittlungsart als Vorlage für fast alle kriminalistischen Nachfolger diente. Hier lernen Sie das lesenswerte Original kennen. Dieser Band beinhaltet folgende Kurzgeschichten: - Der sterbende Sherlock Holmes [The Dying Detective] Holmes liegt seit Tagen schwer krank im Bett. Er verweigert den Arzt und hofft auf Rettung von seiner seltenen Tropenkrankheit durch einen rätselhaften Plantagenbesitzer.

Doch noch ehe der Meisterdetektiv eingreifen kann, wird dieser von Scotland Yard des Mordes bezichtigt und verhaftet. Akteure in diesem Stück sind ein rätselhaftes, leer stehendes Haus und ein ehemaliger südamerikanischer Tyrann. - Der rote Kreis [The Red Circle] Mrs Warren benötigt Holmes’ Hilfe; ihr Untermieter benehme sich merkwürdig, verlasse nie sein Zimmer und kommuniziere nur über Zettel mit ihr. Als dann noch Mrs Warrens Mann überfallen wird, erkennt Holmes, das mehr hinter diesem Fall steckt als nur ein spleeniger Untermieter. - Das Verschwinden der Lady Frances Carfax [The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax] Lady Frances Carfax ist bereits seit mehreren Wochen verschwunden. Holmes beauftragt diesmal Watson, auf dem Kontinent Nachforschungen zu betreiben. Wer sind der mysteriöse Geistliche und seine Ehefrau, mit denen Lady Carfax zuletzt gesehen wurde? - Die gestohlenen Zeichnungen [The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans] Ein Wiedersehen mit Holmes’ mysteriösem Bruder Mycroft Holmes.

Wird Holmes einen kühlen Kopf bewahren? - Das Abenteuer mit dem Teufelsfuß [The Devil's Foot] Holmes muss Erholungsurlaub nehmen. Aber natürlich stehen auch hier wieder Abenteuer ins Haus: Es geht um Familienmord und Irrsinn. Was zunächst nur ein bizarres Verbrechen schien, wird bald selbst zur tödlichen Bedrohung für Holmes. - Ein Fall geschickter Täuschung [A Case of Identity] Die junge Mary Sutherland wendet sich in ihrer Verzweiflung an Sherlock Holmes. Am Hochzeitstag ist ihr Verlobter verschwunden. Liegt ein Verbrechen vor? 2.

Arthur Conan Doyle's His Last Bow collects together eight Sherlock Holmes stories. Originally called Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes and not containing the title story His Last Bow, later editions of this book added that final story and changed the title. When the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes were first sold America, the publishers removed The Adventure of the Cardboard Box, considering its dealing with adultery to be too scandalous for the American public. The story was not released in the United States until year later, when it was included in His Last Bow.

It is more than a century since the ascetic, gaunt and enigmatic detective, Sherlock Holmes, made his first appearance in A Study in Scarlet. From 1891, beginning with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the now legendary and pioneering Strand Magazine began serialising Arthur Conan Doyle's matchless tales of detection, featuring the incomparable sleuth patiently assisted by his doggedly loyal and lovably pedantic friend and companion, Dr Watson. The stories are illustrated by the remarkable Sydney Paget from whom our images of Sherlock Holmes and his world derive and who first equipped Holmes with his famous deerstalker hat. The literary cult of Sherlock Holmes shows no sign of fading with time as each new generation comes to love and revere the penetrating mind and ruthless logic which were the undoing of so many Victorian master criminals.

'My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don't know'. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmesfirst introduced Arthur Conan Doyle's brilliant detective to the readers of The Strand Magazine. The runaway success of this series prompted a second set of stories, The Memoirs. In these twenty three tales, collected here in one volume, you have some of the best detective yarns ever penned. In his consulting room at 221B Baker Street, the master sleuth receives a stream of clients all presenting him with baffling and bizarre mysteries to unravel. There is, for example, the man who is frightened for his life because of the arrival of an envelope containing five orange pips; there is the terrified woman who is aware that her life is in danger and cannot explain the strange whistling sounds she hears in the night; and there is the riddle of the missing butler and the theft of an ancient treasure. In the last story, there is the climatic battle between Holmes and his arch enemy, 'the Napoleon of Crime' Professor Moriarty. Holmes, with trusty Watson by his side, is equal to these and the other challenges in this splendid collection.

This is Book 8 of the series "The Chronological Sherlock Holmes"."His Last Bow: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes" is a collection of seven previously-published Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. Five of the stories were published in "The Strand Magazine" between September 1908 and December 1913. The final story, an epilogue about Holmes' war service, was first published in "Collier's" on 22 September 1917—one month before the book's premier on 22 October. Some later editions of the collection include "The Adventure of the Cardboard Box", which was also collected in "The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" (1894). "The Strand" published "The Adventure of Wistaria Lodge" as "A Reminiscence of Sherlock Holmes", and divided it into two parts, called "The Singular Experience of Mr. John Scott Eccles" and "The Tiger of San Pedro". Later printings of "His Last Bow" correct "Wistaria" to "Wisteria". Also, the first US edition adjusts the subtitle to "Some Later Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes". All editions contain a brief preface, by "John H. Watson, M.D.". The preface assures readers that as of the date of publication (1917), Holmes is long retired from his profession of detective—but is still alive and well, albeit suffering from a touch of rheumatism.
