Info su questo ebook

Eight spectacular Sherlock Holmes stories, including his dramatic final adventure

Years have passed since he tangled with Irene Adler and Professor Moriarty, since he solved the mysteries of the Red-Headed League and the Hound of the Baskervilles, but even in retirement Sherlock Holmes remains as sharp witted and inimitable as ever. Good thing, because England needs him and his loyal friend Dr. Watson now more than ever. On the eve of World War I, German agents have infiltrated the British military; crucial state secrets are within their grasp. Only Holmes and Watson can foil the Kaiser’s spies and rescue the nation from a fate too awful to imagine.
 
In addition to the title story—one of literature’s most thrilling swan songs—this collection includes “The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge,” “The Adventure of the Cardboard Box,” “The Adventure of the Devil’s Foot,” and four other captivating mysteries showcasing Arthur Conan Doyle and his most famous creation at the height of their impressive powers.
 
This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Autore

Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) practiced medicine in the resort town of Southsea, England, and wrote stories while waiting for his patients to arrive. In 1886, he created two of the greatest fictional characters of all time: the detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner, Dr. Watson. Over the course of four novels and fifty-six short stories, Conan Doyle set a standard for crime fiction that has yet to be surpassed.
