Test your own powers of deduction alongside those of the most celebrated detective ever to walk the streets of London or grace the pages of a book. Sherlock Holmes brings his extraordinary insight and intriguing quirks to every case he is called upon to solve, sometimes without even leaving the comfort of his Baker Street apartment. In this collection of 23 ingeniously plotted stories, no case is too big, too small, or too bizarre for Holmes. Whether he is foiling the grand schemes of a would-be bank robber or uncovering family secrets kept hidden away for years, Sherlock Holmes at all times proves himself a formidable adversary. With his trusted and always-admiring friend, Dr. Watson, at his side, "the most perfect reasoning and observing machine the world has ever seen" uses his unique analytical gifts to confound every criminal and unravel every mystery. From A Scandal in Bohemia, in which Holmes almost meets his match in a clever enchantress, to The Final Problem, featuring diabolical Professor Moriarty, the eccentric genius of Baker Street will dazzle you with his intellect and ingenuity. This handsome edition contains all the stories from the first two collections of Sherlock Holmes mysteries ever published, along with charming illustrations by Scott McKowen. It is sure to find a treasured place in your family's library. Book club questions by noted educator Arthur Pober, Ed. D., further enhance the reading experience
