Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - His Last Bow

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – His Last Bow

 

Here, we have a collection of eight classic short stories featuring the world-renowned investigator Sherlock Holmes and his faithful chronicler, Dr. John Watson M.D. I’m quite the fan of Sir Arthur’s short stories, because each one is as good as a novel and they’re the perfect length to read on the bus, in the bath or before going to bed.

Here, you’ll discover severed human ears, strange diseases and even Holmes’ brother Mycroft, a man who possesses the same unique mental talents but who has a completely different personality. Mycroft is many Holmes fans’ favourite character, and with good reason – he’s also not featured in much of Conan Doyle’s work, so you should leap at the chance to meet him while you can. It’s said of Mycroft that “all other men are specialists, but his specialism is omniscience”.

While this is one of Conan Doyle’s later Holmes books, the beauty of it is that you can read in any order and still enjoy the series. This short story collection is a great place to start.
