Product Description

Book Description

When even Sherlock Holmes is threatened, it seems that no one can escape the death and dread that blight Victorian England ...

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh on May 22, 1859, one of seven children who survived to adulthood. Rejecting his family's strict Catholicism and, cut off from their patronage, he decided to set up his own practice in Southsea in 1882.
After the death of his first wife, Louise Hawkins, he went on to marry Jean Leckie in 1907 and they had two sons and a daughter. He died in 1930.

Format: Paperback
The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes contains 12 stories originally published between 1921 and 1927, then collected and published as a book in 1927. The twelve stories are:

"The Adventure of the Illustrious Client"
"The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier"
"The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone"
"The Adventure of the Three Gables"
"The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire"
"The Adventure of the Three Garridebs"
"The Problem of Thor Bridge"
"The Adventure of the Creeping Man"
"The Adventure of the Lion's Mane"
"The Adventure of the Veiled Lodger"
"The Adventure of Shoscombe Old Place"
"The Adventure of the Retired Colourman"

These stories contain some of the weakest in the canon, especially the adventure of the creeping man, which at times veers off into rather fantastical science fiction, but nonetheless there is still much to enjoy here as Holmes turns his deductive powers to locating lost crown jewels, dealing with a suspected case of vampirism, clearing a young woman unjust accused of the Thor Bridge murder, mixing with the turf fraternity and circus people and finally looking into the disappearance of the wife of the retired colourman. There is plenty here to keep the avid Holmsian interested as the Conan Doyle displays both his creation's deductive powers and his own ability to write a thrilling adventure story. This series also contains my own personal favourite Holmes short story, the Three Garridebs, in which Holmes' regard for Watson is laid bare.

Format: Paperback
Having disposed of Sherlock Holmes on several occasions, The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes was Arthur Conan Doyle's final collection of stories about the legendary Baker Street detective. By the time of its publication, a host of copy-cat crime writers were well established and writing similar stories to fill the void created by Doyle's reluctance to publish more Holmes stories. The stories in the collection are of mixed quality, with some reducing Holmes to a shallow caricature, and padding stories with characters and situations that verge of on ridiculous. There is a 'hard-boiled' edge to 'The Mazarin Stone' and 'The Three Gables' (the last revealing some unsavoury attitudes towards black people, which must have been widespread in the 1920s). Why did the greatest crime writer of all time feel the need to imitate American pulp crime writers? In contrast, 'The Problem of Thor Bridge' and 'The Adventure of the Retired Colourman' are absolute classics - sharp, crisp and surprising. An essential book for any lover of Holmes.

Excellent case stories. Could not put it down once I started reading a case. It was all very exciting when I got the book. This was the only Sherlock Holmes collection of cases I had never read.
