The Return Of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The Return Of Sherlock Holmes  by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle


The Return Of Sherlock Holmes 
by
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

After an absence of three years, when Dr. Watson and the world thought he had perished at the hands of his arch-enemy Professor Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes returns from his watery grave, his skills of deduction sharper than ever. No case is too slight for his attention. He uses his skills to find an abducted pupil from the Priory School; to save a young girl who is being stalked by 'a solitary cyclist'; and to search for the missing 'three-quarter' of a Rugby team. He rises to the challenge of deciphering the secret code of the 'dancing men' which leads to a sinister connection with America. High society calls for his services as he saves the Government from the threat of war after a top secret document goes missing, and exposes the murky world of the blackmailer Charles Augustus Milverton. With colourful cases involving the Mafia and Russian nihilists, Conan Doyle shows he has lost none of his narrative skills in this collection of stories published in The Strand magazine as 'The Return of Sherlock Holmes' between 1903 and 1904. Once again, as in 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' Dr. Watson, Holmes's trusted friend and chronicler accompanies him in his pursuit of justice.
