The Return of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of 13 Sherlock Holmes stories, originally published in 1903-1904, by Arthur Conan Doyle. The book was first published on 7 March 1905 by Georges Newnes, Ltd and in a Colonial edition by Longmans. 30,000 copies were made of the initial print run. The US edition by McClure, Phillips & Co. added another 28,000 copies to the run.

This was the first Holmes collection since 1893, when Holmes had "died" in "The Adventure of the Final Problem". Having published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901–1902 (although setting it before Holmes' death) Doyle came under intense pressure to revive his famous character.

This collection contains stories set from 1894, giving Holmes the period from 1891-94 to explain - "The Great Hiatus" has been the subject of intense speculation and analysis by Sherlockian enthusiasts. Also of note is Watson's statement at the end of the cycle that Holmes has retired, and forbids him to publish any more stories. (Wikipedia)

    very poor formating

    The conversion to ebook was very poorly done. The text is nearly unreadable with multiple errors in each sentence. Download from Project Gutenberg and download it there. Their version is much cleaner.

    An excellent collection of Holmes tales. This has some of my favorites. By the way, this version is very nice and isn't full of errors, as some of the other reviews seem to be for other versions, not this one

    Okay....

    Very poor formatting and many, many errors made the story hard to understand. But, hey, what else can you expect from a free download? I would recommed buying one of the .99 cent versions, that way you dont have to deal with those pesky errors.

    Horrible Digitalization

    This translation of Sherlock Holmes has passages that are virtualy unreadable. The first chapter or two are all right but after that certain passages get completely replaced by symbols. I suggest you buy one of the other copys of this book.

    AN IMMENSELY TALENTED NARRATOR

    A previous collection of Doyle's stories, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, brought so much pleasure that I couldn't wait for more. Here they are in THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES stunningly presented by Simon Prebble.. If you've not yet heard a reading by Prebble, sit down and prepare to be well entertained.

    The British born Prebble, an experienced stage, television, and film, actor came to our country in 1990. Since then he has narrated some 350 audio books and has garnered every possible award (some numerous times) - A Golden Voice and Voices of the Century by AudioFile, 24 Earphone awards, 5 Listen Up awards...well, you get the idea, he's terrific.

    This collection of 13 Holmes stories was initially published during the years 1903 - 1904. It is the first collection to appear since Holmes supposedly died in "The Adventure of the Final Problem," and represents Doyle at his best. Among the 13 we find everything from The Adventure of the Empty House (which features the return of Holmes and his explanation of miraculously surviving a to the death struggle with Professor Moriarity) to The Adventure of the Second Stain.

    The redoubtable Watson is, of course, by Holmes's side throughout offering his memorable comments and questions.

    THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is truly a classic and one that detective fiction aficionados will want to hear again and again.

    Yet more detective stories from the master

    Yet more excellent detective stories from the master. I'm not sure why, but Sherlock Holmes stories never seem to get old. They are just really fun. This book is another collection of short stories, including a baker's dozen of adventures. This is generally the same stuff as the other short story collections, so if you have read the others you will know if this interests you or not. Some of the stories do take a slightly different direction than in the other books. Specifically, sometimes Holmes doesn't exactly solve the crime in the way the client wants, and in one instance the client doesn't even ever get to know what really happened. This is slightly odd, but considering the need to vary things up, it worked out rather well. This book does include the first story where I was able to figure out what was going on before Sherlock Holmes explained it. So, I feel a little proud of that. Another fine addition to the collection.
