Tales of Terror and Mystery - The Original Classic Edition (Paperback)


All the Conan Doyle stories together - fantastic: Sherlock Holmes? What can one say about these stories that has not already been said? They provide a glimpse into London at the turn of the 19th century.

The ingenuity of the plots, the clever criminals, Holmes reasoning, Dr. Watsons amazement: these are all fascinating to read and experience. Holmes is part of English literature and worthwhile reading for anyone. What is even more fascinating is that for some plots, no crime was involved.

Yes, some stories involved interesting schemes without a murder or a theft. In one, Holmes even let a murderer go because he thought the crime was justified. Dr. Watson, never pictured in film as being a husband, marries one of the female characters in one of the stories.
