Arthur Conan Doyle

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Classic fiction (pre c 1945), Crime & mystery

A collection of gripping cases that culminates in the most shocking of all - the notorious, fatal encounter between Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls.

'He is the Napoleon of Crime... He is the organiser of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in this great city'.

A man like Sherlock Holmes has many enemies. Violent murderers, deviant villains, ghosts of old loves, blackmailers and poisonous scribes, to name but a few. But none are so deadly, so powerful, as Professor Moriarty. Moriarty - the only man who can compete with Holmes' genius. The only man who can, perhaps, ultimately defeat the great detective.

Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. He was a doctor by trade; optician more specifically. It is rumoured that during his off periods of work he would think about and write his various stories. He is well known for several science fiction works, but of course his most recognizable works are the Sherlock Holmes mysteries. He died in 1930.
He tried desperately to "kill off" Holmes so that he could pursue other genres of writing as well, and not just be known for the Holmes mysteries. However, after much public outcry, Holmes returned in "The Empty House" and in many other stories following, up to the "Case Book of Sherlock Holmes" collection.
