Product Description

Book Description

A tie-in edition of Conan Doyle's His Last Bow - including the final adventure of Holmes and Watson - with an introduction by Sherlock creator Steven Moffat

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and began to write stories while he was a student.Over his life he produced more than thirty books, 150 short stories, poems, plays and essays across a wide range of genres. His most famous creation is the detective Sherlock Holmes, who he introduced in his first novel A Study in Scarlet (1887). This was followed in 1889 by an historical novel, Micah Clarke. In 1893 Conan Doyle published 'The Final Problem' in which he killed off his famous detective so that he could turn his attention more towards historical fiction. However Holmes was so popular that Conan Doyle eventually relented and published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901. The events of the The Hound of the Baskervilles are set before those of 'The Final Problem' but in 1903 new Sherlock Holmes stories began to appear that revealed that the detective had not died after all. He was finally retired in 1927. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died on 7 July 1930.

Format: Paperback
‘His Last Bow’ is a final collection of stories of Sherlock Holmes, as told by his friend and colleague Doctor Watson. First published in 1917, it holds eight stories:
The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge
The Adventure of the Cardboard Box
The Adventure of the Red Circle
The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans
The Adventure of the Dying Detective
The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax
The Adventure of the Devil’s Foot
His Last Bow

The stories, all except the last, are set in the 1890s. The final story, ‘His Last Bow’ was the one I particularly wanted to read. This was because Holmes’s foe in the story, the fiendish Von Bork, was directly used in a novel recently published by Robert Ryan, ‘A Study in Murder’. In that book, Von Bork is directly seeking revenge against Holmes and Watson for what Holmes accomplished in the story ‘His Last Bow’, so I was keen to read it and see the background for Von Bork’s motivation.

All these stories are gems. Holmes is in fine form, and Watson is his faithful, somewhat stolid companion on those adventures. As the book closes, war is looming in the east, and Robert Ryan has done a fine job in continuing the story of Holmes and Watson in his modern books, starting with ‘Dead Man’s Land’ which I thoroughly recommend.

I read this when I was 14, and I've just bought this for my son's 15th birthday.
I already own it, several times, it's in the loft somewhere.
But... if you're 15... you're VERY impressed with Benedict's Holmes, and the cover will sell it to him.
As for the book itself, I always thought "The Return" was one of the best sets of short stories, but none of them disappoint really.
A good price here on Amazon.
