It was a perfect day, with a bright sun and a few fleecy clouds in the heavens. The trees and wayside hedges were just throwing out their first green shoots, and the air was full of the pleasant smell of the moist earth. To me at least there was a strange contrast between the sweet promise of the spring and this sinister quest upon which we were engaged.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twelve stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his iconic detective. Venture back in time to Victorian London to join literature’s greatest detective team – the brilliant Sherlock Holmes and his devoted assistant, Dr.Watson – as they investigate a dozen of their best-known cases.
Originally published in 1892, featured tales include several of the author’s personal favourites: “A Scandal in Bohemia” – in which a king is blackmailed by a former lover and Holmes matches wits with the only woman to attract his open admiration – plus “The Speckled Band,” “The Red-Headed League,” and “The Five Orange Pips.” Additional mysteries include “The Blue Carbuncle,” “The Engineer’s Thumb,” “The Beryl Coronet,” “The Copper Beeches,” and others.
