The Return of Sherlock Holmes Volume 3
In the tale of The Three Students, which Watson himself refers to as a "small but instructive adventure," Holmes's task is to determine which of three possible suspects has cheated in order to win the coveted Fortescue Scholarship. In The Golden Pince-Nez, a professor's secretary is found murdered, and the key piece of evidence — a pair of eyeglasses — is discovered clutched in the victim's hand. The Missing Three-Quarter takes Holmes and Watson to Cambridge, where the university's star rugby player had disappeared just prior to a crucial match. And The Abbey Grange is full of emotional intrigue when Watson finds himself captivated by a beautiful woman whose husband is found dead.
In one of his novels, author Doyle distressed readers by allowing both Sherlock Holmes and his adversary Professor Moriarty to die. Then in 1903, to please readers, he resuscitates the famous sleuth. The stories in this collection tell of his return.
