"Doyle's modesty of language conceals a profound tolerance of the human complexity"-John Le Carré
"Holmes has a timeless talent, passion and literary brilliance that puts him heads, shoulders and deerstalker above all other detectives."- Alexander McCall Smith
"The immense talent, passion and literary brilliance that Conan Doyle brought to his work gives him a unique place in English letters."-Stephen Fry
Arthur Conan Doyle's His Last Bow: Some Reminiscences of Sherlock Holmes(1917) is an outstanding collection of some of the later stories and most dramatic exploits of Detective Holmes and Dr. Watson. These stories were composed between 1908 and 1917, with the exception of the infamous tale "The Cardboard Box", which was written in 1893. Six of these adventures were initially published The Strand magazine, and the final titular story was published in 1917, in Collier's magazine. Set in the foggy moors of England and in the dark alleyways of Victorian London, this classic collection includes some of the best detective yarns ever written.
His Last Bow includes a short preface written Dr. Watson, then moves to other highlights including the espionage story "The Adventure of the Bruce Partington Plans", featuring Sherlock Holmes's brother, Mycroft; "The Adventure of the Red Circle", the evocative case of a mysterious tenant and abduction that leads to an Italian criminal syndicate; and final story, "The Last Bow", a favorite among fans as it features Holmes coming out of his retirement as a detective to work as an undercover agent on the eve of the First World War. This classic of crime literature is a must-have collection for Sherlock Holmes fans.
With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is both modern and readable.
