  • "The RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES relates several of Holmes' adventures where he confronts many an odious character ... The eponymous blackmail artist in THE ADVENTURE OF CHARLES AUGUSTUS MILVERTON, is requested to call at 221B Baker Street, where we find that Holmes has been hired by Lady Eva Blackwell to retrieve some compromising letters ... And in THE ADVENTURE OF THE GOLDEN PINCE-NEZ, Inspector Stanley Hopkins visits Holmes and tells him of the murder of Willoughby Smith, where the victim had not an enemy in the world and there seems to be no apparent motive. A perplexing case which defies solution ..."
  • "Originally published in 1903-1904, THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is the thirteen-story collection of one of the greatest-ever fictional detectives. Three years after the supposed death of Sherlock Holmes and his archenemy Professor Moriarty in the torrent of Reichenbach Falls, Holmes makes a disguised reappearance to Baker Street and his good friend Dr Watson. Featuring one of Holmes' greatest adversaries, Charles Augustus Milverton, and trademark astute logic, forensic science, murder, crytograms and magic, this collection retains all the hallmark brilliance of Arthur Conan Doyle's best work."

  • "This collection of the fictional exploits of the world's first consulting detective gathers in one volume the thirteen stories of the second series, which took place after Holmes' appaent "death" at Reichenbach Falls."
  • "It has been three years since Sherlock Holmes fell to his death after a showdown with his brilliant enemy Moriarity at Reichenbach Falls. Believing his friend to be dead, Doctor John Watson has moved on with his life. That is, until he discovers Sherlock Holmes alive and in disguise one afternoon in a London shop. A whole new series of adventures awaits Holmes and Watson, and the consulting detective must use the science of deduction to solve new mysteries, while explaining his own supposed death and disappearance to Watson. The Return of Sherlock Holmes was published eight years after The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, in which Holmes' character was killed. But Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's readers were desperate for more of Holmes' adventures, so he brought the character back in the first short story in this collection, "The Empty House." Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories have been adapted numerous times, including the 2009 and 2011 movies starring Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr., and for the popular television shows Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, and the BBC's Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. The first episode of Sherlock's third series, named "The Empty Hearse," references "The Empty House" from this volume.

  • "This book contains 13 adventures of the world's greatest detective, chronicling his return to the world of crime-solving after his apparent death at the Reichenbach Falls. Conan Doyle first published his fictional character of Holmes in 1887 followed by a series of short stories in the Strand Magazine in 1891. The public could not get enough of Holmes and his popularity still continues."
  • "Thirteen tales of crime and intrigue, including the remarkable story of Sherlock Holmes’s return from the dead It has been three years since Sherlock Holmes, locked in a fierce struggle with his arch-nemesis, Professor Moriarty, disappeared over the edge of the Reichenbach Falls. The world has mourned his loss greatly, no one more so than his good friend and partner in the arts of detection, Dr. Watson. Imagine Watson’s shock, then, when an elderly book collector he bumps into on the street turns out to be none other than the master sleuth himself. Despite all evidence to the contrary, Sherlock Holmes did not die in Switzerland—he vanquished his greatest foe and set a trap for every other would-be mastermind foolish enough to attempt to match wits with the world’s greatest detective. From the astonishing revelation in the opening paragraphs of “The Adventure of the Empty House” to the motiveless murder at the heart of “The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez” to the kidnapping that sets in motion the plot of “The Adventure of the Priory School,” these thirteen classic stories are among the most entertaining and endlessly clever entries in the canon of Sherlock Holmes. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler. “Perfect bite-size treats . . . You’ll be hooked inside two pages.” — The Independent “Every writer owes something to Holmes.” —T. S. Eliot “Sherlock Holmes is the very foundation stone of the edifice that is crime fiction.” — The Times (London)"@en
