The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (Kobo eBook)
First published in 1893, “The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes” is a collection of eleven detective stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous literary creation, Sherlock Holmes. Doyle had intended that this collection be the final stories of Holmes and Watson and killed off the beloved detective in the last story in this collection, “The Final Problem”, which contains the infamous confrontation between Holmes and his arch-nemesis, the criminal Moriarty, at the Reichenbach Falls. However, the public clamored for more tales of their favorite detective and Doyle brought Holmes back in “The Hound of Baskervilles” and the short story collection “The Return of Sherlock Holmes”. This collection contains some of the most exciting and famous of the adventures of the intrepid detective, such as the “Silver Blaze”, and its mysterious dog in the night, “The Greek Interpreter”, which stars Holmes’ intense and formidable brother Mycroft, and many more. These timeless tales of male friendship, complicated and intriguing mysteries, set in the foggy cobblestone streets of London, remain as thrilling and satisfactory as when they were first written. This edition includes a biographical afterword.
