    Great collection of Conan Doyle tales

    Never read this compilation. I found them typical of Conan Doyle's great skills. Some of the tales were predictive, but still worth the read.

    Another side of Conan Doyle at his best

    This compilation of suspense tales by the master himself, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, blew my mind.

    His approach to suspense and mystery writing was fresh and the stories definitely unique. I'm glad this I discovered this gem -- and I recommend it highly. A great bargain for $1!
