The Valley of Fear
Sherlock Holmes, legendarily-if fictionally-the world's first consulting detective, returns for his fourth and final novel-length adventure in this 1915 book, originally serialized in the Strand Magazine from September 1914 to May 1915. In the course of investigating the apparent murder of one man-and discovering that the body belongs to another man entirely-Holmes and his sidekick and biographer Dr. Watson learn that they are up against the detective's most fiendish opponent, Professor James Moriarty. Can Holmes and Watson thwart Moriarty's agents in time to stop another murder? 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 Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, 1892).
