Summary (From the publisher):

In Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, Arthur Conan Doyle was to create literary figures more real to us than most historical ones.

“His incredible untidiness, his addiction to music at strange hours, his occasional revolver practivce within doors, his weird and often malodorous scientific experiments, and the atmosphere of violence and danger which hung around him made him the very worst tenant in London.”

‘His Last Bow’, the title story of this collection, tells how Sherlock Holmes is brought out of retirement to help the Government fight the German threat at the approach of the First World War. The Prime Minister himself requests Holmes’s services to hunt down the remarkable German agent, Von Bork. Several of the detective’s earlier cases complete the volume, including ‘Wisteria Lodge’, ‘The Bruce-Partington Plans’, and ‘The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax’. In ‘The Dying Detective’, Dr. Watson is horrified to discover Holmes at death’s door from a mysterious tropical disease as his friend lays a trap for a murderer.
