Since his first appearance in Beeton’s Christmas Annual in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in one eBook, Bantam Classics presents all fifty-six short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle’s classic hero—a truly complete collection of Sherlock Holmes’s adventures in crime! Volume I includes the early novel A Study in Scarlet, which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock Holmes to the world. This baffling murder mystery, with the cryptic word Rache written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr. John Watson. Next, The Sign of Four presents Holmes’s famous “seven percent solution” and the strange puzzle of Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked-room mystery. Also included are Holmes’s feats of extraordinary deception in such famous cases as the chilling “The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” the baffling riddle of “The Musgrave Ritual,” and the ingeniously plotted “The Five Orange Pips.” Volume II begins with The Hound of Baskervilles, a haunting novel of murder on eerie Grimpen Moor, which has rightly earned its reputation as the finest murder mystery ever written. The Valley of Fear matches Holmes against his archenemy, the master of imaginative crime, Professor Moriarty. In addition, the loyal Dr. Watson has faithfully recorded Holmes’s feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as the thrilling “The Adventure of the Red Circle,” Holmes’s tragic and fortunately premature farewell in “The Final Problem,” and the twelve baffling adventures from The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes. Conan Doyle’s incomparable tales bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221 B Baker Street, where for more than forty years Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.

Sherlock Holmes (/ˈʃɜrlɒk ˈhoʊmz/) is a fictional detective created by Scottish author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a graduate of the University of Edinburgh Medical School. A London-based "consulting detective" whose abilities border on the fantastic, Holmes is famous for his astute logical reasoning, his ability to adopt almost any disguise, and his use of forensic science skills to solve difficult cases. Holmes, who first appeared in publication in 1887, was featured in four novels and 56 short stories. The first novel, A Study in Scarlet, appeared in Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887 and the second, The Sign of the Four, in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890. The character grew tremendously in popularity with the first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine, beginning with "A Scandal in Bohemia" in 1891; further series of short stories and two novels published in serial form appeared between then and 1927. The stories cover a period from around 1880 up to 1914. All but four stories are narrated by Holmes's friend and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson; two are narrated by Holmes himself ("The Blanched Soldier" and "The Lion's Mane") and two others are written in the third person ("The Mazarin Stone" and "His Last Bow"). In two stories ("The Musgrave Ritual" and "The Gloria Scott"), Holmes tells Watson the main story from his memories, while Watson becomes the narrator of the frame story. The first and fourth novels, A Study in Scarlet and The Valley of Fear, each include a long interval of omniscient narration recounting events unknown to either Holmes or Watson.

In a balanced approach, the text presents the theoretical foundations of American policing, with a focus on contemporary police practices and research.

In an engaging and readable style, the author offers an overview of past practices and research in policing, but emphasizes more contemporary policing practices and research. The focus of the book is on a contextual understanding of concepts in American policing. It is supported by the academic research, balanced with the voice of the American police officer. Features: Balanced approach that emphasizes contemporary policing. Written by an academic with police experience, resulting in an approach that combines the theoretical and the practical aspects of police work. Uses hypotheticals to bring the concepts to life for students. Student-friendly and accessible presentation incorporates graphic elements such as boxed features and charts to emphasize and summarize key points. Encourages students to think critically about the role of policing in today’s society. Oliver is an experienced author of textbooks in the criminal justice and policing fields, having authored or co-authored over a dozen books.

The life of Arthur Conan Doyle illustrates the excitement and diversity of the Victorian age unlike that of any other figure of the period. In his autobiography, he wrote: 'I have had a life which, for variety and romance, could, I think, hardly be exceeded.' He was not wrong. But Conan Doyle was also a Victorian with a twist, a man of tensions and contradictions. He was fascinated by travel, exploration, invention, and indeed all things modern and technological; yet at the same time very traditional, voicing support for values such as chivalry, duty, constancy, and honour. By the time of his death he was a celebrity, achieving worldwide fame for his creation of the rationalist, scientific super-detective Sherlock Holmes; but his later decades were taken up with advocacy of the new religion of Spiritualism, in which he became a devoted believer. The new Complete Works of Conan Doyle embodies all of the excitement and vitality of this extraordinary man's life, ranging from the Sherlock Holmes stories to philosophical and spiritual works, taking in science fictions and historical comedies, grand histories and criminological investigations. The contents of the volumes are as follows: Volume 1 (204 pp.): Introduction to the works by Dr. Neil McCaw; A Study in Scarlet; The Sign of Four Volume 2 (150 pp.): The Hound of the Baskervilles Volume 3 (148 pp.): The Valley of Fear Volume 4 (378 pp.): Micah Clarke Volume 5 (283 pp.): Sir Nigel Volume 6 (336 pp.): The White Company Volume 7 (304 pp.): The Refugees Volume 8 (209 pp.): Rodney Stone Volume 9 (140 pp.): Uncle Bernac Volume 10 (169 pp.): The Lost World Volume 11 (265 pp.): The Poison Belt; The Land of Mist Volume 12 (121 pp.): The Mystery of Cloomber Volume 13 (332 pp.): The Firm of Girdlestone Volume 14 (163 pp.): The Stark Munro Letters Volume 15 (110 pp.): A Desert Drama Volume 16 (188 pp.): A Duet, with an Occasional Chorus Volume 17 (244 pp.): The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Volume 18 (206 pp.): The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes Volume 19 (262 pp.): The Return of Sherlock Holmes Volume 20 (198 pp.): The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes Volume 21 (179 pp.): The Captain of the Polestar Volume 22 (309 pp.): The Great Shadow and other stories Volume 23 (167 pp.): Round the Red Lamp Volume 24 (176 pp.): The Green Flag Volume 25 (161 pp.): The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard Volume 26 (221 pp.): Round the Fire Stories Volume 27 (171 pp.): The Last Galley Volume 28 (139 pp.): Danger! and other stories Volume 29 (284 pp.): Detective and Mystery Stories Volume 30 (137 pp.): The Maracot Deep and other stories Volume 31 (101 pp.): The Parasite and Other Stories Volume 32 (441 pp.): Uncollected Short Stories Volume 33 (268 pp.): complete poetry; The Journey (play) Volume 34 (98 pp.): Waterloo; The Speckled Band (plays) Volume 35 (79 pp.): Jane Annie (an opera, libretto by Conan Doyle in collaboration) Volume 36 (185 pp.): Through the Magic Door; A Glimpse of the British Army; A Glimpse of the Italian Army; A Glimpse of the French Line; The Vital Message Volume 37 (98 pp.): The Story of Mr. George Edalji; The Case of Oscar Slater Volume 38 (132 pp.): The War in South Africa Volume 39 (448 pp.): The Great Boer War Volume 40 (114 pp.): The Crime of the Congo Volume 41 (81 pp.): The German War; To Arms!

IV (1917) Volume 46 (195 pp.): The British Campaign in France and Flanders, vol. V (January-June 1918) Volume 47 (181 pp.): The British Campaign in France and Flanders, vol. VI (July-November 1918) Volume 48 (85 pp.): The Coming of the Fairies Volume 49 (210 pp.): The Edge of the Unknown; The New Revelation Volume 50 (160 pp.): Pheneas Speaks; Psychic Experiences; Spiritualism and Rationalism Volume 51 (194 pp.): The History of Spiritualism Volume 52 (127 pp.): Our African Winter Volume 53 (159 pp.): The Wanderings of a Spiritualist Volume 54 (108 pp.): Our American Adventure Volume 55 (129 pp.): Our Second American Adventure Volume 56 (329 pp.): Memories and Adventures; Western Wanderings The Works have all been newly typeset for this edition. In the absence of an even nearly complete edition of Conan Doyle's works which is in the public domain, the texts for this edition have had to be sourced piecemeal from available public-domain versions. The majority of these have been relatively early editions; a few have been modern reprints of the original texts unedited; a number have been etexts reproducing in their turn editions now in the public domain. Due to their number and variety, it is impossible to list them all here. Neil McCaw, Reader in English Literature at the University of Winchester and Academic Director of The Arthur Conan Doyle Collection, Lancelyn Green Bequest, has written a new introduction to the Works, in volume 1, which covers biographical background, critical reception, influence, and a brief bibliography.

'"Is it really possible, do you suppose," said Sherlock Holmes to me one morning, as we took breakfast together, "that a healthy and robust man may be so stricken with terror that he drops down dead?"' So begins 'The Adventure of the Brown Box'. Even better than his first collection, twelve new stories from the much praised Denis O. Smith, including 'The Adventure of the Velvet Mask', 'The Adventure of the Tomb on the Hill', and 'The Secret of Shoreswood Hall'. Smith's stories are of the sort most eagerly devoured by avid fans of Holmes and Dr Watson: a would-be client tells Holmes a strange tale, and he is drawn in to a seemingly impenetrable mystery. Whether in the shrouding fog of London, or far from the city, deep in the countryside, these fast-paced stories, set in the late nineteenth century, before Holmes's disappearance at the Reichenbach Falls, recreate with wonderful fidelity the world of Conan Doyle's best Holmes stories. This captivating anthology brings to a new audience the very best of Denis O. Smith's work in a satisfyingly hefty compendium.

In 1893, Dr. Watson and Conan Doyle published what they believed was the last Sherlock Holmes story, "The Final Problem". The world was stunned, and The Strand Magazine rushed to fill the vacuum. Readers were soon introduced to a new detective, Martin Hewitt, as presented by Arthur Morrison. Although initially different than Holmes, Hewitt also showed a number of interesting similarities as well... For many years, Martin Hewitt has been mostly forgotten, except in some Sherlockian circles, where it has long been theorized that he was a young Mycroft Holmes. However, recent evidence has come to light that Hewitt's adventures were - in fact - cases undertaken by a young Sherlock Holmes when he lived in Montague Street, several years before he would take up his legendary rooms in Baker Street with Watson. These volumes are the Complete Martin Hewitt Stories, taking Arthur Morrison's original publications and presenting them as Sherlock Holmes adventures. If you are a fan of Holmes, enjoy! And by all means, seek out the original Hewitt stories and enjoy them as well. The Game is afoot!
