The Final Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Forside
Little, Brown Book Group, 6. feb. 2014 - 160 sider

An absolute must-have for Sherlock Holmes fans, this collection is a treasure trove of little-known pieces and rarities featuring the world's most famous detective, gathered by expert Peter Haining.

Collated with extensive notes and background material, the collection includes twelve unmissable works by Arthur Conan Doyle, ranging from short stories and plays to parodies, poems and commentaries.

Haining's appendices add some very rare material, including a revealing interview with Conan Doyle about his inspiration for Holmes - and his reasons for killing him off. This is an outstanding compilation.
