Arthur Conan Doyle

Write Review

Rated 0

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

As Watson falls in love and Sherlock Holmes battles his darker habits, the two men once again tackle a case of baffling complexity.

'Down the Strand the lamps were but misty splotches of diffused light which threw a feeble circular glimmer upon the slimy pavement'.

Whilst the seamy streets of London drown in a sea of smog, Sherlock Holmes sinks into a cocaine-induced melancholy, until Miss Mary Morstan presents him with a most intriguing case. A terrible death, an unknown benefactor, stolen treasure, and a secret pact between criminals stretching back to a mutiny-torn India, lead Holmes into an epic pursuit of the truth.
