Sherlock Holmes: The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Complete Set 9)
By (author) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
‘Mr Sherlock Holmes, the well-known private detective, was the victim of a murderous assault this morning which has left him in a precarious position’. Dr Watson stops dead in his tracks when he reads of the attempt on his friend’s life. The forces of nature turn against man, love breeds hatred and cowardice, mothers appear to attack their own children, and Sherlock Holmes, the one man who can redress the balance, seemingly lies at death’s door …When an assassination attempt is made on the great detective’s life it seems that no one can escape the death and dread which blights Britain…
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh on May 22, 1859, one of seven children who survived to adulthood. Rejecting his family’s strict Catholicism and, cut off from their patronage, he decided to set up his own practice in Southsea in 1882. After the death of his first wife, Louise Hawkins, he went on to marry Jean Leckie in 1907 and they had two sons and a daughter. He died in 1930.
