This collection of the fictional exploits of the world's first consulting detective gathers in one volume the thirteen stories of the second series, which took place after Holmes' apparent "death" at Reichenbach Falls. First published in the Strand Magazine from October 1903 to December 1904, these tales were reprinted in book form almost immediately afterward, in the spring of 1905. From sinister graffiti to the mysterious destruction of multiple busts of Napoleon to the kidnapped son of a duke, Holmes's powers of deduction and cool reserve will be tested at every turn in these classic yarns: • "The Adventure of the Empty House" • "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder" • "The Adventure of the Dancing Man" • "The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist" • "The Adventure of the Priory School" • "The Adventure of Black Peter" • "The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton" • "The Adventure of the Six Napoleons" • "The Adventure of the Three Students" • "The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez" • "The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter" • "The Adventure of the Abbey Grange" • "The Adventure of the Second Stain" This replica edition of the first publication of these tales includes all the original illustrations by Sidney Paget. 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 Hound of the Baskervilles, 1902).
