Notable for an instance in which Holmes's deductions turn out to be wrong, the first appearance of the detective's brother Mycroft, and Watson's report of Holmes's death at the hands of Professor Moriarty, the stories here include: . "Silver Blaze" . "The Yellow Face" . "The Stock-broker's Clerk" . "The 'Gloria Scott'" . "The Musgrave Ritual" . "The Reigate Puzzle" . "The Crooked Man" . "The Resident Patient" . "The Greek Interpreter" . "The Naval Treaty" . "The Final Problem: Scottish surgeon and political activist SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE (1859-1930) turned his passions into stories and novels, producing fiction and nonfiction works sometimes controversial (The Great Boer War, 1900), sometimes fanciful (The Coming of the Fairies, 1922), and sometimes legendary (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, 1892).
