The Man with the Twisted Lip: "The Man with the Twisted Lip" is the sixth of the 12 stories in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. After rescuing a friend's husband from an opium den, Dr. Watson is startled to find his friend Sherlock Holmes there, disguised as an old man apparently trying to extract information from the addicts in the den. Holmes is on the scent of a man who is living a double life. This story in unique among Holmes tales in two ways. First, it turns out that no crime has been committed and there is no villain. Secondly, and unlike in his other stories, Holmes does not explain how he solved the mystery, but leaves it to the intelligent listener to work it out.A Case of Identity: "A Case of Identity" is one of the 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
