Overview

The Sign of the 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.

As a recent college graduate, at 45, I have spent the last five years reading various types of literature. This was my first foray into Holmes. I thoroughly enjoyed it. To think that such a work was first published 45 years ago and is still as interesting and enticing as anything written today! Everyone should take the time to read some mystery from the past. Entrigue without the grotesque. Loved it
