This book is just that, a remarkable and ingenious assortment of the imaginings of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spread throughout short stories portraying Sherlock Holmes. These adventures and memoirs will present to you the better part of the Sherlock Holme's series as it contains stories like A Scandal in Bohemia, a thrilling blackmail of foreign royalty, and numerous other infamous tales.

Because of these aspects any Sherlock Holmes novel will provide an exhilarating read that can keep you guessing until the very end.
