Sintesi dell'editore

This collection of eight world-famous cases from Doctor Watson's portfolio illustrates the singular mental faculties of Sherlock Holmes: a body on the London Underground; the strange disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax; a parcel containing some coarse salt and two freshly severed human ears. In the course of these investigations, Holmes himself is struck down by a virulent Eastern disease, and we are reintroduced to his remarkable brother Mycroft, "all other men are specialists, but his specialism is omniscience."

Finally, with the approach of the German War, Holmes emerges from retirement among his books and bees on the South Downs to lay his unique intellect at the disposal of the British Government, with the historic results disclosed in "His Last Bow".

Its been sometime since I've read these stories and being in need of some comfort reading, I decided to download an audible version. These stories are like some old friends and the narrator, who I have heard with his work on John Buchan's books, only enhanced the stories with his most complementary reading. If you like Holmes you will not be disappointed. The final story is also interesting for the very singular time in history in which it was written.
