"Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last. The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes & His Last Bow is the final collection of short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle which features the beloved detective Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. Watson. This collection includes perhaps the most intriguing, almost gothic, stories ever written about the detective and his companion and truly tests their brain and brawn. From murderous revenge to mutilation, vampires, and more strange occurrences, this collection explores a variety of themes and modes of narration that mark a break from the earlier stories while remaining as riveting. Adapted to film, television, and radio several times over, these stories truly remain evergreen." "Perhaps when a man has special knowledge and special powers like my own, it rather encourages him to seek a complex explanation when a simpler one is at hand. Presumed dead after plunging into the Reichenbach Falls with his archenemy Professor Moriarty, the sharp-witted detective Sherlock Holmes returns after a hiatus of three years. When Sir Arthur Conan Doyle killed off Holmes in ‘The Final Problem’, he came under intense pressure from fans to revive the beloved detective in a credulous way. Thus, in The Return of Sherlock Holmes, Holmes surprises his sidekick Doctor Watson with his return and exhibits the analytical skills and impeccable logic that continue to charm readers across time. Set in the period after Holmes’s “resurrection”, this collection has some of the most enchanting stories such as ‘The Adventure of the Norwood Builder’, ‘The Adventure of the Dancing Men’, and ‘The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist’, which have been adapted to film, television, and radio. A keepsake edition."

About the Author
"Born on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE started writing stories as a student. With a repertoire of over 30 books, 150 short stories, essays, plays, and poems, he earned the distinction of being one of the greatest short story writers ever, since Edgar Allan Poe. A master of all literary genres, his memorable creation is the invincible sleuth Sherlock Holmes whom the readers are introduced to in his first novel, A Study in Scarlet (1887). Such was the charisma of this Great Detective that after the author killed Holmes in ‘The Final Problem’ (1893), he was compelled to bring Holmes back after vociferous demands from readers.
