The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's name is inseparable from that of his most famous character 'Sherlock Holmes'. The best collection of the exploits of this highly perspicacious detective remains The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Starting from 'A Scandal in Bohemia' to 'The Adventure of the Copper Beeches', all the twelve episodes in this volume never fail to thoroughly baffle the reader. To Holmes however, every missing link is an instrument to churn the thought process that is constantly aided by his keen observation, analytical mind and superior sense of surmise. With sharp wit and alert moves, Holmes skillfully hunts down the criminals, making every intricate mystery, look like a mundane affair in the end.
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Here is another collection of Sherlock Holmes in continuation with the Adventures of the gifted sleuth. As in any mind-boggling case that Holmes pursues, there is intrigue, deceit, hoaxes and murder; all of which are as baffling as they are fascinating. Each narrative becomes thoroughly enjoyable when Sherlock Holmes incisively probes every lead however insignificant, to uncover the mystery. Of special significance is the last encounter of our hero with the dreaded villain Professor Moriarty, in which Holmes supposedly perishes. It is another matter that under intense pressue from the enraged readers, Sherlock Holmes had to be resurrected a decade later.
The Return of Sherlock Holmes
Conan Doyle had shocked the ardent fans of his hero Sherlock Holmes by the demise of the sleuth. There were personal compulsions for the author to free himself from the burden of coming up with newer and newer plots. He never expected the spontaneously unfavourable reaction of the Holmes aficionados, and had to resurrect the hero. The eventual result was The Return of Sherlock Holmes. The artful first exciting episode in 'The Return' shows how brilliantly the detective resumes normalcy as he displays the same, if not a shade better, acumen to unravel intriguing mysteries.
