He and his trusted friend, Dr. Watson, step from Holmes’s comfortable quarters at 221b Baker Street into the swirling fog of Victorian London to combine detailed observation and vast knowledge with brilliant deduction. Inevitably, Holmes rescues the innocent, confounds the guilty, and solves the most perplexing puzzles known to literature.

Volume II of The Complete Sherlock Holmes begins with The Return of Sherlock Holmes.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, tired of writing about Holmes, had killed him off at the end of The Final Problem,” the last tale inThe Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (found in Volume I of The Complete Sherlock Holmes). Public demand for new Holmes stories was so great, however, that Conan Doyle eventually resurrected him. The first story inThe Return, The Adventure of the Empty House,” features Conan Doyle’s infamously inventive explanation of how Holmes escaped what seemed like certain death.

This volume also includes two other collections of Holmes stories, His Last Bow andThe Case Book of Sherlock Holmes; Conan Doyle’s final full-length Holmes novel,The Valley of Fear; a pair of parodies, The Field Bazaar” and How Watson Learned the Trick”; and two essays about the private life” of the beloved sleuth.
