Description
A new collection to coincide with the upcoming major motion picture starring Robert Downey, Jr., and Jude Law, "Sherlock Holmes"
This gripping collection includes many of the famous cases-and great strokes of brilliance-that made the leg-endary Sherlock Holmes one of fiction's most popular creations. With his devoted secretary, Dr. Watson, Holmes emerges from his smoke-filled rooms on Baker Street to grapple with the forces of treachery, intrigue, and evil in such cases as "The Speckled Band," in which a terrified woman begs Holmes and Watson's help in solv-ing the mystery surrounding her sister's death, and "A Scandal in Bohemia," which portrays a European king blackmailed by his mis-tress. A spine-tingling treat for anyone who loves a classic whodunit, "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" shows the inimitable detective at his best.
