Description:
Resurrected after his apparent death three years earlier, the older and wiser Holmes of these stories shows a willingness to let his conscience prevail over the letter of the law. In The Empty House, within hours of Dr. Watson bumping into an aged bookseller, he and Holmes are back together after a three year hiatus, tracking a master criminal to their own front door. An obvious motive and copious clues point a murderous finger at Holmes own client in The Norwood Builder. The Dancing Men jettisons Holmes into the investigation of what had previously appeared to be merely childish scribbles, and in the end it is Holmes' own pistol clapped against the head of the malefactor. The Solitary Cyclist stalking Miss Violet Smith sends Holmes and Watson down a murky trail of passion and crime. In this first volume of The Return of Sherlock Holmes, the fearsome duo of Watson and Holmes are at the top of their form.
