Overview

The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle

Arthur Conan Doyle was born in 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. He was trained for medicine, which he entered in 1882. Fortunately, his practice was not successful and he began writing to fill out the time. His first Sherlock Holmes novel was A STUDY IN SCARLET.

Holmes appeared in 56 short stories and three novels: THE SIGN OF THE FOUR, THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES and THE VALLEY OF FEAR.

In THE SIGN OF THE FOUR Sherlock Holmes solves the mystery of the Indian Treasure for Miss Mary Marston, remaining, as always, enjoyable and enigmatic.

It only downloaded through page 66, then it stops--in the middle of the story!

Yes, in this case you do get what you pay for. I downloaded it twice, and the "text" is all random numbers and symbols.

(The sign of four) is even better than (A study in scarlet), like I said before, Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in history, I wish I could have lived at that time in history and been a detective in the mid to late 1800's in either New York or London.

The Sign of Four was very entertaining and gave me much more insight into the inner workings of Sherlock and his relationship with Watson. Sherlock had a mind that was so in tune with solving puzzles and meeting challenges of mystery and intrigue. For anyone who loves the stories of Arthur Conan Doyle, I believe you'll enjoy this captivating read.
